NCO promotions will be based on talent management
Fort Eustis, Virginia,  3 November 2016 - In the early days of Command Sgt. Maj. David
Davenport’s 30-plus year career, the young staff sergeant who was on drill sergeant duty
was already weighing the merits of impressing his promotion board by getting an
associate’s degree.

It took hours of hard work as well as a lot of peer support, but Davenport, who would go on
to become command sergeant major of Army Training and Doctrine Command, eventually
made it to sergeant first class. He never looked back.

Talent management was the focus of TRADOC’s third town hall Thursday at Fort Eustis,
Virginia, where panelists including Davenport addressed how noncommissioned officers
can get ahead in today’s Army.

“It’s about how you identify the very best noncommissioned officer to do these other things
to make them a more well-rounded, experienced NCO, and expose them to different things
as well,” Davenport said.

“I think everyone has unique abilities, knowledge and skills,” Davenport told the NCO
Journal before taking his seat at the virtual town hall.

“What we are trying to figure out is how to maximize that, get the right Soldiers in the right
job,” he continued. “Not only a job but also in broadening opportunities, and there are
many of them. No longer can NCOs be just drill sergeants and recruiters. They can go
work with industry, and they can do academic fellowships. We are really trying to open
up the aperture to develop NCOs.”

Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey warned NCOs that promotions will be based on
talent management, during the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting in
Washington, D.C. in October.

“We are going to promote people based upon talent, and we will slot people for
advancement in the United States Army based upon talent,” Dailey said.

Davenport acknowledged that NCOs have had a lot of information thrown at them about
NCO 2020, but he said that’s why the series of TRADOC town halls were developed. The
town halls offer an opportunity for Soldiers to have their questions answered by senior
NCOs and to have issues placed into context.

“Their voice and their opinion matters,” Davenport said. “After all, there’s 391,000 of us
Soldiers [across the active component, Guard and Reserve], and I happen to be one.
[With the other panel members], we are a very small percentile of this group of NCOs
who are trying to set the course for the next 20 or 30 years for our NCO Corps, and
acknowledge all the great gains and all the sacrifices and the great work that NCOs have
done [and] build upon the success.”

At a time when staying relevant in today’s Army is crucial, Davenport had some advice for
NCOs who are pondering their futures in the Army.

“Stay current, read and ask questions of those who can make the decisions or give you
the proper answer,” he said. “Don’t hesitate to engage senior leaders. Don’t hesitate to
engage the branch managers, and take advantage of all this stuff. In this day and age of
social media and virtual town halls, leaders are very accessible. You need to take
advantage of that.”
