As noted in the 2019 National Intelligence Strategy, technology-driven transfor-mation across social, political, and economic domains continues at warp speed. Implications for militaries and their supporting Intelligence Community (IC) have expanded both in scope and complexity. Joint operational planning and evaluation occur in this disrupted and transitional environment, with very little predictable framework capable of guiding practitioners and strategists. This article addresses this discrepancy. The authors introduced and argued for creating a Strategic Engagement Spe-cialist (SES) role in a JFQ article titled Strategic Army (October 2019), which concludes that strategic effect in the Information Environment (IE) cannot be achieved through discrete IOs, but rather, with holistic ‘Strategic Engagement’ that reinforces trust. In that vein, here we introduce practical measures that should be incorporated into doctrine.
