Abstract:

Time-Span of Discretion TSD was tested as a measure of military work and responsibility in a unit of the land forces. It was found useable and gave results which match the judgments of military personnel about the relative levels of work in various ranks. Evidence was obtained to indicate that everyone assesses work-level in terms of the measure of time which TSD describes. The TSD data obtained support those who believe that the present rank structure is not ideally matched to the needs of combat battalions. The Felt-Fair Pay results, and comments of service personnel both indicate substantial differences in the way individuals assess the adequacy of civilian as opposed to military pay.
