The Mission Command Center of Excellence (MCCoE) develops, integrates and synchronizes Leader Development, Army Profession, and Mission Command requirements and solutions to prepare leaders and units to successfully exercise Mission Command during the execution of Unified Land Operations.
The MCCoE is fully committed to developing and delivering current and relevant Leader Development, Army Profession and Mission Command DOTMLPF (Doctrine-Organization-Training-Materiel-Leadership and education-Personnel-Facilities) solutions for the warfighter based on lessons learned from current operations and analysis of future operations.
The MCCoE was established in 2010 as the Army lead for implementing Mission Command across the force. The MCCoE was tasked to: determine MC WfF requirements; identify future MC capabilities; integrate MC across the DOTMLPF domains; and present resource-informed, outcomes-based MC and MC-related recommendations and solutions.
"Mission Command is the conduct of military operations through decentralized execution, using mission orders to enable disciplined initiative within the commander's intent. Done well, it empowers agile and adaptive leaders to successfully operate under conditions of uncertainty, exploit fleeting opportunities, and most importantly achieve unity of effort. Importantly, it helps establish mutual trust and shared understanding throughout the force. Mission Command is fundamental to ensuring that our Army stays ahead of and adapts to the rapidly changing environments we expect to face in the future."
- GEN Raymond T. Odierno, United States Army Chief of Staff,
