Abstract : Increasing qualitative and quantitative personnel requirements, shrinking entry level manpower pools, evolving battle doctrine, and advanced technology in increasing numbers of new systems with numerous organization changes are issues concerning the U.S. Army's ability to resource its force in the future. Because of the impact these issues have on how the enlisted force is resourced or is to be resourced, the Army is seeking ways within its system to insure that a competency based force is developed to meet the challenges of filling human resource demands in the late 1980's and through the 1990's. Within this context the Army is in the process of developing a new concept that will affect the way the enlisted force is structured, managed, and led. Its goal is to increase the readiness of the force by retaining soldiers with appropriate combinations of leadership and technical competence. The concept is a pilot study designed to evaluate the Military Occupation Structure (MOS) which recognizes soldier competence in two dimensions: leadership and technical skills. The notion is to attain competency of personnel to resource contemporary and future, sophisticated, high-tech equipment.
