Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to examine ways in which the Norwegian Army's leadership development program can be improved to better develop junior leaders using a theoretical framework, formal guidance, and a qualitative survey of Norwegian commanders. The thesis also compares the Norwegian Army's program to the leadership development programs of the U.S. Army, the New Zealand Army, and the Boeing Corporation. The results suggest that these programs offer a number of leadership development ideas that are worth pursuing for the Norwegian Army. The research underscores that leadership development is a continuous process. Developmental tools such as mentors, coaches, After-Action Reviews, 360-feedback programs, and self-assessments all influence and improve the process. The author concludes with recommendations for improving the Norwegian Army's leadership development program.
