Abstract:

The Officer Personnel Management System OPMS has been with us for about ten years. From the beginning, OPMS has been more a patchwork quilt than a single piece of cloth. It was designed only to fix those aspects of the then current system circa 1970 that were perceived to be broken. With a decade of living with the system it seems appropriate to pause and examine its worth. Specifically, does OPMS do what it was designed to do and will it meet the needs of the Army of the future This is the seminal question confronting the Department of Army, OPMS Study Group. My purpose is to submit ideas in the essay format to the Study Group for their consideration. I plan to explain within the historical context the way we manage, promote and select for command officers of the Regular Army. My overall goal is to see the present system fine-tuned to better serve our Army and our Nation.
