This study will be reviewed in the open portion of the meeting.

3. Talent Management and the Next Training Revolution—This study will develop a concept of talent management that the Army should use to describe individuals and teams through 2030; examine current technologies and trends employed in talent management, to include recruiting, training, and retention; and develop a roadmap for the employment of promising talent management systems, associated technologies, and best practices, taking into consideration the unique nature of military service.
