TRAINING AND LEADER DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The Army provides combatant commanders with trained and ready units, leaders, and individuals. Army expeditionary forces are prepared to conduct unified land operations in support of unified action. The Army accomplishes this by conducting tough, realistic, standards-based, performance-oriented training, which is based on eleven principles of training and seven principles of leader development.

Leaders develop proficiency in both cultural norms and language and, when possible, train with their partners before participating in operations. Commanders and other leaders replicate cultural settings as much as possible during training, using role players or actual partners.

Leaders continuously evaluate observations, insights, and lessons on planning, preparing, and execution. They also incorporate corrective action into training before the unit conducts the next operation.
