Abstract:

This thesis constitutes one part of a six-team, three-year study designed to determine if it would be practical or feasible for the USAF to eliminate or modify current upward progression policies. The primary objective of this thesis was to provide a baseline of information with respect to alternate enlisted career progression systems to the research teams conducting the subsequent efforts. The alternate career progression systems examined in this thesis are those of the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Army, Britains Royal Air Force, and two major airlines. The informational base was constructed by systematically identifying, investigating, and synthesizing of current enlisted career progression systems for each of the systems listed above with respect to the grade structure, skill structure, and the promotion system.
