Abstract : The increasing rate of non-deployable Soldiers has a strategic effect on the Army. At issue is what Army leaders can do to minimize this rate. This is a top priority issue for Army leaders and the Human Capital Enterprise and impacts the readiness of operational and institutional forces. Commands, think tanks, and senior staffs also examined and provided insights and recommendations about maintaining deployable Soldiers. This research expanded upon their work and focused on how administrative, command, legal and medical policies and processes affect Army readiness. Changes to policies and processes cause consequences leaders must manage and resource. Therefore reducing the number of non-deployable Soldiers requires a holistic approach crossing numerous systems and multi-functional disciplines. The Study Group found that early, active, and sustained leader involvement significantly improves Soldier readiness. In addition, the Study Group identified areas for further study such as implementing measures to prevent Soldiers from becoming non-deployable.
