Several recent studies, including a study authorized under the 2002 National Defense Authorization Act, have indicated the need for the Department of Defense (DoD) to update the practice, policy, and law applied to Joint Officer Management (JOM) and Joint Professional Military Education. In 2003, DoD asked the RAND Corporation to undertake an analysis that would provide guidance on officer training and development in joint matters. This work builds on that earlier effort. As a lead-in to this study, the 2005 Joint Officer Management Census survey polled officers serving in billets that were likely to require joint experience or joint education or provide such experience. More than 21,000 survey responses were collected. This report examines the extent to which officers believe their jobs provide them with joint experience or require them to have had prior joint education, training, or experience, and it examines how respondents’ answers differ across organizations and military services in which the billets are located. This report provides a comprehensive reference source for the JOM survey data and demonstrates how the data can be used to anchor a strategic approach to joint officer management.
