Abstract : The current global security environment is complex and at times unknowable. The Army's ability to respond rapidly and effectively to a range of military operations is vital to achieving national strategic objectives. As the Army prepares to meet the warfighting challenges of today and to ensure that the future force is prepared to defend the nation, leader development must be a priority. To ensure leaders have the attributes needed for success on future battlefields, leader development programs have to ensure their messaging, delivery, and development components align with the Army's Leader Development Process. The Army's Leader Requirements Model (ALRM) describes the attribute requirements for leaders at all levels. The programs that are responsible for assisting in the development of these attributes are identified in Army Regulation (AR) 350-1, Army Training and Leader Development (2014). This study uses a capabilities based assessment (CBA) model to analyze the effectiveness of these programs. A comparison analysis of the programs is then performed to identify opportunities for improvement or best practices. Finally, recommend solutions for leader development organizational redesign to the Army G3/5/7 are provided.
