Abstract:

While its mission and purpose are constant, the logistics workforce faces a continuously evolving strategic environment. The DoD Logistics Human Capital Strategy HCS provides a clear vision that establishes the foundation for the future logistics workforce, culture, and human resources practices. DoD Logistics HCS Vision and Benefits The DoD Logistics HCS vision is an integrated, agile, and high-performing future workforce of multi-faceted, interchangeable logisticians that succeed in a joint operating environment. The bedrock of this vision is competency-based management of the DoDs logistics workforce, manifest in the creation of a logistics career roadmap with a common lexicon and set of core logistics competencies and proficiencies. Operationalized through a DoD Logistics Career Development Framework LCDF, this roadmap will provide the future logistics workforce with the right mix of function-specific subject matter experts and multi-faceted Enterprise Logisticians. The HCS will benefit DoD logisticians, and the Services, Agencies, and COCOMs. For individuals, the HCS provides a clear career roadmap and development framework with consistent expectations and application of competencies and skill requirements, in addition to enhanced opportunity for cross-functional development, flexibility, and growth. For the Services, Agencies, and COCOMs, the HCS improves logistics synergy which, in turn, provides better capabilities for current and emerging mission requirements. In addition, the HCS provides an enterprise system that will enable identification, development, and utilization of the desired competencies to meet mission needs.
