Abstract
The United States Navy is currently going through a human capital transformation in order to better meet the security challenges of the 21st century. A key component of the plan is the job analysis process, conducted using the SkillsNET methodology, to define job requirements in terms of knowledge, skills, abilities, and tools, in contrast to the current approach of relying on the rating badge and a naval enlisted code associated with the billet. The objective of this thesis is to develop a new metric to present manpower readiness in terms of human capital readiness, in line with the Navy's new human capital management approach. This thesis reviews human capital management theories and Sea Warrior, focusing on the capture of human capital skill objects by SkillsNET. Manpower readiness is defined as a function of two components: competence level and preparedness level. Competence level represents the current level of readiness, while the preparedness level is a proxy for the level of readiness in the immediate future. The proposed metric utilizes the human capital skill objects compiled and defined by SkillsNET, and aggregates the individual data to generate the overview of human capital readiness at functional or organizational levels. This metric can be used as a performance measure to evaluate the effectiveness of activities and initiatives conducted in human capital management, which ranges from planning, recruiting, and training to assigning.
