US troops will be evaluated in a new way


US Armed Forces officers plan to upgrade in the rank of the new system. If earlier, for promotion, assessments of the physical condition and recommendations of superiors were enough, now the US military is adopting the experience of private companies.

So, for example, a candidate for promotion will have to pass psychological tests, a test at the training ground, in which he is obliged to prove that he is able to manage the unit in a variety of conditions.

In addition, the opinion of not only the officer’s leadership, but also his subordinates is now taken into account.

An important element of the tests is anonymity. That is, the commission that makes the decision to raise the officer does not know his name and rank, and the applicant’s face is hidden by a screen.
