Abstract:

The Individual Readiness section at Defence Research and Development Canada DRDC Toronto is initiating a program of research investigating military individual readiness of Canadian Forces CF personnel. This literature review was conducted to provide a broad understanding of the various elements of individual readiness and factors that influence readiness. This review begins with definitions of individual readiness. Current models and measures of individual readiness were also considered. The review then identified and described antecedents of individual readiness, including the CF organization, skill training, and personnel support programs. This ensured individual readiness would be considered from the organizational level as well as the individual level. Following this, the factors influencing individual readiness were examined with particular connection to the impact on performance. A draft model of military individual readiness is presented. Individual readiness dimensions include organizational citizenship behaviour, commitment, identification with the CF, job satisfaction, perceived organizational support, technical competence, self-efficacy, coping skills, physical fitness, family adaptation, and worklife balance. The literature concludes with a discussion articulating a possible research program to explore military individual readiness.
