“Mission over function” – Developing combat-effective Airmen for Great Power Competition

Officials from Air Education and Training Command, which will be redesiginated as Airman Development Command (ADC), are rapidly redesigning core institutional training and development architectures to support Great Power Competition (GPC). This includes designing education and training for the future force with a “mission over function” mindset, where the primary focus is on developing Airmen to emphasize their shared military purpose and mission objectives over individual functional roles.
