In this article, Bridges and Navarro identify some critical elements of the mobilization process that they believe are currently deficient and require greater attention to enable the US Army to execute a short-notice, full-scale mobilization.

Their recommendations include the development and maintenance of mobilization plans, rehearsal of concept drills and mobilization exercises to test and refine installation mobilization plans.
