Abstract : From June through September 1987, Syllogistics, Inc., and the Hay Group conducted a study to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the current United States Air Force Officer Effectiveness Report (OER) system and to recommend alternative designs which could improve its usefulness. Two other groups conducted separate but concurrent efforts with the same study objective. These were active duty and retired senior Air Force officers at Randolph AFB and students at the Air Force Command and Staff College. Specific Air Force guidance for the project was that any alternative conceptual design to the OER should: (1) focus on the officer's current job performance; (2) provide good differentiation among officers on potential for promotion and for successfully executing higher responsibility; and (3) provide some vehicle for giving officers feedback on their performance to support career development and counseling.
