Abstract : This thesis traces the development of the compensation program for the All-Volunteer Force, 1973-1993, through a 'lessons learned' approach. Eighteen lessons are highlighted in the study. The thesis describes the concepts behind the All-Volunteer Force and the philosophic rationale for the development of the compensation program. It analyzes, compares, and contrasts two major compensation approaches, called market and institutional. Consideration is also given to compensation standardization techniques of pay comparability and pay competitiveness. The thesis concludes with a discussion of issues pertinent to future compensation studies.
