Episode 4 - Doctrine Hacks: A Conversation on Doctrine Shortcuts
In this episode of Breaking Doctrine, our host, Major Chris Parker discusses recent innovations in doctrine delivery – shortcuts or “hacks,” that make doctrine more digestible and easier to access. Over the past couple of years, the Army has introduced several initiatives that improve access and help to enhance understanding of doctrine – whether through digital delivery or more traditional means. The tools include a staff reference guide, a doctrine app, a ‘what’s new’ type of doctrine update, audiobooks, and tools designed to guide users directly to the doctrinal information they need – all with the ultimate intent of making doctrine more user friendly. In this podcast MAJ Parker hosts other Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate (CADD) team members, Lieutenant Colonel Reed Burggrabe, Tactics Division Chief, Lieutenant Colonel Matt Fox, Army Doctrine Proponency Division Chief, and Colonel Rich Creed, the Director of CADD.

Episode 3 - Consolidation of Gains
In this episode of Breaking Doctrine, our host, Major Chris Parker discusses one of the four Army Strategic Roles - Consolidate Gains. The 2017 rewrite of Field Manual (FM) 3-0, Operations, introduced the Army to the concept of consolidate gains. Consolidate gains includes activities to make enduring any temporary operational success and to set the conditions for a sustainable environment, allowing for a transition of control to legitimate civil authorities. Consolidation of gains is an integral and continuous part of armed conflict, and it is necessary for achieving success across the range of military operations. In this podcast MAJ Parker hosts Colonel Shane Morgan, Commander, MCTP (Mission Command Training Program), Colonel Bob Molinari, Chief, Operations Group Alpha at MCTP, and Colonel Rich Creed, the Director of CADD.
