Abstract

This paper provides a brief outline of the Army lessons process that is applied when developing and applying lessons across all Army activities. The Army lessons process supports the conduct of operations and informs Army Raise-Train-Sustain functions, through the incorporation of lessons into doctrine, training and capability development. The paper focuses upon four distinct foci. Firstly, we examine the whole of Army responsibility in relation to the transfer of knowledge into lessons. Secondly, we consider the vital roles and responsibilities of knowledge authorities in this transfer. Thirdly, we examine the ways in which observations and insights transform into findings and lessons. Finally, we propose the establishment of the Army Lessons Network as a formal means of knowledge interaction.
