Performance evaluation, when executed properly, is one of the key aspects of talent management that not only enables organizations to accomplish their missions, but also promotes better performance, advancement, and retention of the right talents. Past studies have indicated shortcomings in the Navy’s current performance evaluation system (PES). Identifying and implementing successful practices of other services’ PES could improve the Navy’s accuracy of assessing service members’ performances, which could ultimately increase the overall quality of mission readiness of the fleet as well as the individual Sailors. This is a qualitative thesis aimed to aid decision makers as they continue to improve and modernize the Navy’s PES. The methodology includes (1) conducting an overview of the services’ PESs based on current instructions and policies, (2) analyzing the Navy’s PES by comparing and contrasting with other services’ PESs, (3) conducting a thorough literature review to gather and synthesize best practices on the different PESs, and (4) facilitating focus group discussions with Navy SMEs in talent management.
