Most active duty Army officers do not trust the current officer promotion and evaluation system, which is perceived as negatively impacting the retention of talented leaders. A common perception of the current active-duty Army promotion evaluation system is that it does not promote objectively and merit-based Captains with the greatest amount of potential. Furthermore, the Army will continue to stifle trust, motivation, and willingness for successful leaders to stay in and serve by continuing its current method of talent management. This study suggests that an objective, merit-based automated evaluation system can be implemented to overcome the current problems, improve effectiveness of talent management, and self-regulate to eventually identify the most significant characteristics common to successful leaders by branch, rank, position, and more importantly, by duty position.
