Abstract : The indiscriminate violence that has plagued Colombia for the last 50 years, together with other secondary factors have committed the Colombian Army to a continuous war of attrition inhibiting its ability to modernize and be ready for the challenges brought about by the new world order.

The suggested mechanism should facilitate the translation of national objectives and strategy, strategy and military operations planning,
