The purpose of this thesis is to examine possible areas for improvement on the current Marine Corps junior enlisted performance evaluation system-Proficiency and Conduct marks. My research questions include the following: Does the Marine Corps need a new performance evaluation system for its junior enlisted? What type of performance evaluation systems could be implemented effectively for the E1 to E4 group in the Marine Corps? What areas in performance management can the Marine Corps focus on for fostering future performance? The results of the study conclude that the Marine Corps does not need a new performance evaluation system for its junior enlisted but would benefit from a newly designed system that combines key elements of evaluation and development. Recommendations include updates to the current individual records administration manual (IRAM), a Proficiency and Conduct scale redesign, and the removal of the Proficiency and Conduct scale completely. Culture and time are complex factors in the analysis of the benchmark and all recommendations do not examine the complicated variables associated with concept of change management.
