Officer Talent Management
|Publication Date:||14 April 2023|
This pamphlet serves primarily as a professional development guide for all officers to understand the process of talent management (TM). TM is the systematic planning for the right number and type of people to meet the organization's needs at all levels and at all times so that most people are employed optimally. It requires officers to understand their talents, defined as an officer's unique knowledge, skills, and behaviors (KSBs) that result in effective performance when properly aligned against a particular job. Within a TM system, officers must take an active role in managing their careers. This pamphlet describes the policies and procedures that guide an officer to understand, develop, and employ their talents over the course of a successful career. It also serves as a mentoring tool for leaders at all levels. It is an important TM guide for assignment officers, proponents, and Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) selection board members. The overarching focus of this pamphlet is the development and TM of all officers of the U.S. Army.
