Core Values and the Expeditionary Mindset
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Today’s international security environment necessitates that modern militaries transform from conventional armed forces to expeditionary forces. To this end, developing an expeditionary deployment capability depends in part on reorganizing armies into smaller, more modular andmission-tailored forces that are capable of operating in austere environments. The current security environment necessitates a change not only in a military’s force composition, but also in mindset. Changing the conventional military way of thinking towards one that is focused on expeditionaryoperations calls into question how such a transformation will influence the core values of amilitary. In particular, such a change will impact institutional areas such as organizational culture and learning, training and preparation, and adaptability. What is required then is the need to theoretically and empirically study the concepts of ‘core values’ and the ‘expeditionary mindset’. Exploring international social science research from various countries and armed forces is among the tasks of the international workshop ‘Core Values and the Expeditionary Mindset’. This workshop was hosted between 8 – 10 January 2010 by the Department of Leadership and Management of the Swedish National Defence College.
