Tools
Command Visibility - Improved visibility of behavioral trends to provide Army Senior Leadership a more coordinated descriptive analysis to inform decisions.

Initiative Development Process - Implement a standardized framework to scientifically examine proactive initiatives across the Army to provide evidence-based recommendations to Senior Army Leadership for resource allocation.

Strategic Assessment - Implement an assessment framework based on data included in the Strategic Management System (SMS), designed to measure the attainment of R2 objectives.

Counseling - Refine and consolidate several counseling tools to provide leaders the best comprehensive picture of their Soldier's strengths, areas for improvement and risk.



What is it?

Tools
Personal Readiness Standards - Establishing a holistic R2 system to support development of a ready Army and increase deployability into the future.

Research - Utilizing the findings from the five-year Army Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Service members (STARRS) to determine changes to guidance, training, policy and resources to reduce the incidence of suicide and other risk behaviors.

Accessions - Identify, evaluate and leverage emerging assessment tools and late-stage research efforts to assist the Army in making selection and inclusion decisions at the time of accession, and to identify individuals requiring early assistance to improve their resilience and ultimately their retention through their first terms of enlistment.

Targeted Training - Refining the Army's training approach to incorporate components of evidence-based resilience, performance, intervention and prevention curricula, resulting in more effective and efficient training. Based on the leader's holistic assessment of the Personal Readiness and risk of their formation, they will be able to target individuals in the appropriate place in their life cycle and provide tailored training that will help to mitigate risk and optimize performance.
