With over a decade passed since the introduction of the Joint Qualification System, it is time to assess how well the current system meets the joint development needs of the total force. The JQSs narrow focus on officers working at the strategic level may be insufficient to build the joint-ready force needed to meet our nations warfighting demands. Broader approaches to assess, track, and manage joint capabilities are necessary to develop a fully joint-competent force. Recognizing a broad range of joint experiences throughout the career cycle will emphasize the value of joint matters, encourage Service members to pursue joint opportunities, and support more informed personnel management. The Air Force is currently developing a Joint Talent Tracking and Management JTTM system to complement the JQS and expand the range of joint experiences recognized, including assignments, education and exercises at all mission levels tactical, operational, and strategic for the total Air Force Active Duty and Air Reserve Component officers, enlisted, and civilians.
