Abstract:

The report is one of a series of major publications marking the culmination of the OFFICER PREDICTION research program and the impact of the findings on BESRLs ongoing and newly formulated programs on officer evaluation and the career development. It presents the important dimensions of officer leadership behavior derived from analyses of more than 2000 single observations and judgments by trained military staff on each officer participant during a three-day OEC simulation. Over 300 scales and evaluations were assembled from analysis of the evaluations recorded on 900 officers performing 15 tasks during a three-day OEC exercise. The series of factor analyses by which the dimensions of leadership performance were obtained from these data are given in detail in a technical supplement.
