Abstract : The purpose of the workshop was to rate a series of issues in terms of their current importance for Army policy studies. The ratings provided by the workshop are to be used by the Arroyo Center Policy Committee (and the Center) to help formulate the policy analysis program of the Arroyo Center during fiscal year 1984. The material presented and considered at the workshop was developed from interviews conducted by The Futures Group with 20 top-management personnel on the Army Staff and Secretariat. More than 160 issues were nominated by the interviewees as important to current Army policy studies in light of post-POM conditions envisioned for the United States and abroad. The analysis and sorting resulted in formulation on nine (9) policy areas that embraced a total of 71 consolidated issues from the interviews. Prior to the workshop, these nine policy areas and the consolidated issues associated with each, along with a summary of his or her remarks on each issue raised during the interview, were submitted to each interviewee for review. This feedback step was included to remove ambiguities in summarizing the discussions and to ensure that each interviewee's inputs were properly reflected in the material the advisory panel was to consider.
