Abstract:

The Army personnel system is in the midst of one of the most demanding periods of change in its history. It faces significant challenges associated with modernization, manning the force and distributing soldiers to an Army which is forward deployed. These changes impinge upon the effectiveness of the personnel system and stretch its resources to their limits. When viewed from the perspective of emerging trends, it is apparent that the personnel system must be modernized to meet the challenges of the future. This study concludes that the personnel system has a unique opportunity to prepare for the management environment of the next century through a multi-dimensional approach which applies the principles of high performance. The author describes the nature of the high performance concept and suggests approaches for achieving it within the Army personnel system. Keywords Excellence, high performance, Army personnel system, personnel management. Author
