Abstract : The task group limited itself to professional rather than maintenance issue and operated under certain assumptions: Army psychologists are and will be oriented toward a career in the military. Psychologists in the Army have a need to view career avenues within the military which allow for development and advancement both as a psychologist and a military officer. We operate in a highly structured bureaucracy which needs to be able to view psychologists in a structured career manner and psychologists need to be able to see themselves in a structured career pattern within the bureaucracy. This does not negate the need for flexibility to deal with individual needs and change within the structure. (Future Shock). For career development to be an operational concept, there must be continuity in program development both at a local level and on an Army wide level. (Author)
