                 Better Today
The implementation of the OKR process is slowly becoming a part of the culture at Fort Jackson. All of our OKRs are transparent and the achievement or lack thereof of objectives promotes accountability across the installation. The OKRs are also aligned with the CG’s enduring priorities and our four lines of effort. The OKR process helps us focus on “what matters”.
Instead of using measures of performance (MOP) and measures of effectiveness (MOE) which most folks are familiar with, we have chosen to use the OKR methodology to align our efforts and make sure everyone is working towards the same goal. Our goal is to limit the number of objectives each LOE focuses on at one to no more than three, which provides a focused effort by all. We also make sure every one of our key results include a number(s), that is truly the only way to effectively and objectively measure progress. And finally, every OKR is structured around the phrase “as measured by,” for example, we will accomplish objective X “as measured by” the following key results. The following is an example of an OKR from our BCT LOE:
Objective #1: Transition from APFT to ACFT as Test of Record NLT 1 October 2020 as measured by the following key results.

 Fort Jackson 2028
As the Army begins to test and implement the concepts of TRADOC Pamphlet 525-3-1, The U.S. Army in Multi-Domain Operations 2028, and execute its new people and modernization strategy, the collective leadership at Fort Jackson is asking the question, what does all of this mean for us? Currently, we have more questions than answers, specifically as it relates to Multi-Domain Operations (MDO). Our G3, LTC Jason Pieri, has done an outstanding job is designing the initial framework for how we will approach this challenge, which we are calling Fort Jackson 2028.
