Abstract : The Army Warfighting Challenge 10 identifies the need for agile and adaptive leaders and talent management (TM) has become a topic of discussion to overcome this challenge. The Army developed a task force to improve TM and is incorporating TM initiatives into the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A), but TM policies and procedures still do not leverage proven methods utilized in the civilian sector. This thesis analyzes the use of human capital analytics or talent analytics to determine if the Army would benefit from adding the capability to IPPS-A. The case study method compares civilian sector application to the Army's current TM methods and evaluates the obstacles to implementing Analytics to manage the Army's officer population. Human Capital Analytics has reduced the uncertainty associated with civilian sector HR polices and development expenditure. It provides an evidence basis for decisions affecting the future of a corporation. The Army has a history of time-inconsistent behavior associated with TM and implementing policies with future deleterious effects. Analytics may prevent future time inconsistent behavior and optimize officer TM to achieve an overmatch against future enemies.
