Title Logistics Junior Officer Development in a Period of Persistent Conflict.
Publication Date May 2013
Media Count 60p

Abstract The Army uses two very different deployment models for sustainment units. Brigade Support Battalions within Brigade Combat Teams deploy as battalions after training together. Sustainment units outside of Brigade Combat Teams, echelons above brigade units, deploy as individual company and platoon teams. Those units train with one headquarters and deploy and work for another headquarters unit. As echelon above brigade units transition on the battlefield, company commanders can have four or more battalion and brigade commanders in an 18-month company command. This study investigates if the turbulence of echelons above brigade units deploying on their own Army Force Generation cycle impacts junior officer development, specifically between company commanders and battalion commanders. Analysis of interviews with commanders at company, battalion, and brigade level demonstrate that the disjointed Army Force Generation model utilized by echelons above brigade units impact leader development and other organizational dynamics. This monograph provides details on the unforeseen impacts of the echelons above brigade deployment model.
