Abstract:

The U.S. Army officer evaluation system relies principally upon the efficiency report as a tool in managing the career development of each officer. The overall sysetem is not fully accepted by the officer corps, and Department of the Army studies indicate a strong need to improve on both the short and long range goals of the system. This study takes one of the newer personnel management methods, that of performance analysis - management by objectives, and outlines its usefulness as an evaluation technique. Performance analysis is shown to provide improved communications between superior and subordinate, a systematic means of charting performance progress, a means of motivating the subordinate toward improved performance, a positive impact on the evaluation review, and a major innovation in the total appraisal process by treating the evaluation as a system rather than discretely.
