Appendix G

Data-Gathering Sessions

In conducting this study, the committee engaged in an extensive data-gathering effort that included numerous briefings during virtual and in-person plenary sessions in addition to six site visits and additional virtual sessions conducted by sub-groups of the committee membership. As documented in this Appendix, the data-gathering sessions emphasized collection of information from U.S. Air Force (USAF) elements, including insights and perspectives from key stakeholders across the USAF human capital management (HCM) system as well as other relevant offices of the Department of Defense and the other Services (Figure G-1 provides an overview).

The individuals listed on the following pages were key contributors to the study’s data-gathering sessions, including those who assisted in the coordination and planning of each of the committee’s site visits. In particular, the committee wishes to specifically acknowledge the study’s primary USAF point of contact, Ken Schwartz, Chief, Air Force Testing and Survey Policy, and Program Manager, Air Force Personnel Research, Accession and Training Management Division (AF/A1PT), who provided extensive subject matter expertise in addition to essential support for the committee’s numerous plenary briefings and site visits. Additionally, the committee’s work benefitted from input from countless individuals, many of whom are not listed below. Over the course of the study, many individuals participated in roundtable sessions (in person and virtually) and provided additional insight in support of the formal briefing materials. Unfortunately, those individuals cannot all be identified by name, but their contributions are greatly appreciated by the committee and were critical to the thoroughness of the committee’s data-gathering efforts.

The USAir Force human capital management (HCM) system is not easily defined or mapped. It affects virtually every part of the Air Force because workforce policies, procedures, and processes impact all offices and organizations that include Airmen and responsibilities and relationships change regularly. To ensure the readiness of Airmen to fulfill the mission of the Air Force, strategic approaches are developed and issued through guidance and actions of the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Manpower, Personnel and Services and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.

Strengthening US Air Force Human Capital Management assesses and strengthens the various U.S. Air Force initiatives and programs working to improve person-job match and human capital management in coordinated support of optimal mission capability. This report considers the opportunities and challenges associated with related interests and needs across the USAF HCM system as a whole, and makes recommendations to inform improvements to USAF personnel selection and classification and other critical system components across career trajectories. Strengthening US Air Force Human Capital Management offers the Air Force a strategic approach, across a connected HCM system, to develop 21st century human capital capabilities essential for the success of 21st century Airmen.
