Abstract

Beginning in the early 1980s and continuing through the middle 1990s, the US Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) sponsored a comprehensive research and development program to evaluate and enhance the Army's personnel selection and classification procedures. It was actually a set of interrelated efforts (one major effort named "Career Force," collectively known as "Project A," that were carried out by the sponsor (ARI) and a contractor consortium of 3 organizations (the American Institutes for Research—AIR,the Human Resources Research Organization—HumRRO, and the Personnel Decisions Research Institute—PDRI). This chapter explores implications for future personnel research and personnel management and evaluates the successes and failures of Project A.
