Abstract : The report describes research conducted in job analysis. This was performed as the initial step in the development of systems engineering of leadership training courses in the Infantry Officer Candidate (IOC) program. The sample population consisted of 385 officers attending the Infantry Officer Advanced Course, all graduates of the IOC program. Written records of their duty assignments were taken from the Officer Qualification record, and their duty positions and MOS numbers were tabulated and assigned to fewer, more general categories. Results showed initial assignments included 66 different duty positions and 47 different MOS numbers, and that the series of assignments throughout the mandatory tour of duty produced tour profiles for the majority of individuals.
