People are the Army’s most important resource. The Manpower and Force Management Analyst’s challenge is to ensure that Army organizations have the right number of people to do the job and an efficient organizational structure which will best use its personnel. This becomes a complex task, as the Army, on a Congressionally-limited budget, is constantly preparing itself to fight the battle of the future with new and modernized weapons, doctrine and organizations. Manpower and Force Management personnel help Army organizations adapt and change to accomplish these new and evolving missions.

Management Analysts assess the missions of Army organizations and, using analytical tools, determine the amount of work to be done, the number of people needed to do the work and the manner in which the organization will operate to accomplish the mission.
