Abstract:

One of the recurring problems in military manpower planning is the balancing of the need for a lengthy period of training and development of a career force against the requirement that the force structure be capable of relatively short-term fluctuations to meet political and other requirements. This problem is examined in terms of a hypothetical force model of six components. These components have been selected by dividing the force into junior, middle and senior groupings and then viewing each group in terms of officers and other ranks. While recognizing the interdependence of segments, each has been studied separately and potential management policies and procedures are suggested for them. The policies and procedures recommended are based on the personal needs of the individuals under study and a knowledge and the theoretical and research findings in the fields of motivation and career development.
