Gen. James McConville, newly appointed U.S. Army chief of staff, said he plans to observe a people-focused strategy as the service branch works to modernize its force, Defense News reported Sunday.

The Army is adopting a multi-domain operations approach and is establishing organizations that align with the MDO concept, he told Defense News. These support organizations would cover a variety of functions including cyber, information, intelligence and space.

McConville noted potential efforts to develop a cybersecurity training environment that would allow for virtual exercises. The general also mentioned the service's intention to modernize its talent management system to better recognize the skills of volunteer soldiers.
