5-19. Expertise is the special knowledge and skill developed from experience, training, and education.  Domain knowledge is what leaders know about application areas used in their duties and positions. Leaders create and use knowledge in at least four domains. Tactical knowledge relates to accomplishing a designated objective through military means. Technical knowledge consists of the specialized information associated with a particular function or system. Joint knowledge is an understanding of joint organizations, their procedures, and roles in national defense. Cultural and geopolitical knowledge is awareness of cultural, geographic, and political differences and sensitivities.


5-20. Army leaders know fundamentals, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). Their tactical knowledge allows them to employ individuals, teams, and organizations effectively with the activities of systems (combat multipliers) to fight and win engagements and battles or to achieve other objectives.   Competent readiness-focused leaders try to replicate actual operational conditions during training to develop tactical knowledge. Unfortunately, leaders cannot always take the entire unit to the field for fullscale maneuvers. They must achieve maximum readiness by training parts of a scenario or a unit on the ground, while exercising larger echelons with simulations.

5-21. Fieldcraft describes the skills Soldiers require for self-sustainment during operations. Understanding and excelling at fieldcraft sets conditions for mission success and reduces the likelihood of casualties.  Likewise, Army leaders ensure their Soldiers take care of themselves and provide the means to do so.  Leaders gain proficiency in fieldcraft through formal training, study, and practice. They must enforce tactical discipline and ensure Soldiers practice fieldcraft to prevent future casualties.
