Abstract:

The current Army Officer Evaluation System does not provide a complete evaluation. It is limited in its ability to provide the rated officer and the raters all the possible data available on the rated officer and does not provide the rated officer with the insight of peers and subordinates. A 360-Degree feedback system used in conjunction with the current system would provide this additional data. This paper examines the use of a 360-degree feedback system to improve the process of officer leadership development and selection. It examines the reasons for using a 360-degree process and why the current Officer Evaluation System fails to provide these benefits. Finally, it examines the lessons learned from the use of a 360-degree feedback system by other organizations and recommends a plan for implementing this type of system into the Army Officer Evaluation System.
