Joint Operations Concept Development Process

Keywords concept development process joint operations

1. Purpose. This instruction provides guidance for joint concept development and synchronizes the efforts of the joint concept community in the DOD capabilities-based approach to transformation. Joint concepts link strategic guidance to the development and employment of future joint force capabilities and serve as “engines for transformation” that may ultimately lead to doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel and facilities (DOTMLPF) and policy changes. This instruction defines the specific joint concepts known as the Joint Operations Concepts (JOpsC) family. It describes how these concepts are developed and managed, prescribes specific concept templates, introduces the Joint Concept Steering Group (JCSG), and describes joint experimentation as it relates to assessment of the JOpsC family. Upon approval by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS), this instruction supersedes previously published CJCS joint concept development guidance.
2. Cancellation. CJCSI 3010.02A, 15 April 2001, “The Joint Vision Implementation Plan (JIMP)” and the “Joint Concept Development and Revision Plan (JCDRP),” July 2004, are superseded.
3. Applicability. This instruction applies to the Joint Staff, Services, combatant commands, Defense agencies, and joint and combined activities responsible to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
