Description: The overall aim of the Army 2020 Programme is to transform the British Army by the end of the decade in accordance with the structural design and operational concepts devised by the Army 2020 Study Team and endorsed by the Defence Board, to meet Defence Planning Assumptions and unforeseen challenges in the future strategic environment. The Programme sets out a whole force concept where regulars, reserves and civilians create an integrated capability that adds up to more than the sum of the parts. Extensive changes are made to the Army's structure, creating a Reaction Force and a pool of Adaptable Forces, supported by Force Troops. The number of Regular posts within the structure will fall from a post-SDSR endorsed total of c.94,000 to c.82,000 by 2016. The number of Reserves rises to c.30,000 to create an Army numbering c.112,000. Wider changes will be made to the Army's procedures, behaviours and culture by 2020 to ensure the effectiveness and long-term viability of the new model (the Transformation Agenda).

DCA text: The last Major Projects Authority (MPA) Gateway Review of Army 2020 in May 2014 made a number of recommendations relating to the Transformation phase of the Programme. The Army 2020 Team has now developed a set of milestones to provide a clear way ahead for the cultural and behavioural changes required, as well as producing a mechanism for measuring progress of this work. Management and measurement focus around the Programme’s benefits and the activity that will realise those benefits is underway.
