capstone concept for joint operations
Describes the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff's vision for how the Joint Force will defend the nation against a wide range of security challenges. The CCJO emphasizes the Joint Force's support of defense strategic guidance for the protection of national interests. As the foundational concept document, the CCJO's development is similar to that of subordinate operating and supporting concepts, however, the guidance, reviews, evaluation, and approval processes for the CCJO are as directed by the Chairman. The CCJO helps establish force development priorities to implement the vision for the future Joint Force and provides a bridge between strategic guidance and joint operating concepts in support of Joint Force development.
