The Army employs a range of technologies, incentives, programs, and policies to identify the talents of its people and the talent demands of its organizations in timely, accurate, and granular detail. This allows for the use of data-driven analytical tools in its talent matching and alignment (employment and development) efforts, increasing overall workforce productivity. This granular data also drives a far more dynamic and accurate long-term workforce planning system, reducing unanticipated talent gaps and increasing overall Army readiness.
