Abstract : An assumption that incoming Army personnel during the 1970's will differ in social and personal characteristics from persons who entered the Army in earlier decades has led to the conclusion that it will be necessary to modify Army policy and doctrine regarding personnel management and administration. The objectives of the study are to describe these changing characteristics, determine their effects upon Army personnel policy and doctrine, propose alternative leadership techniques, personnel policies, and doctrines, and identify areas where sufficient information is lacking and describe the requirements for Army studies or research in these areas.
