Abstract : Enlisted force management is concerned with meeting national military manpower requirements with the nation's citizens. It attempts to balance the demand for enlisted personnel as determined by the requirements process with the supply of enlisted personnel in a cost-effective manner. This report represents the first phase of the larger study. It presents a historical view of enlisted force management, and it does so from two perspectives. First, it provides a chronological account of how external influences have shaped enlisted force management and the evolution of enlisted management practices. Second, it describes some recurring themes that run through the history of the enlisted force. Five themes recur: Quality; Specialization; Integration; Separation; and Compensation.
