Abstract
A pilot study has shown Time-Span of Discretion to be applicable as a measure of military work and responsibility. Based on this measure, the median value of work level for each military rank except three, showed a significant and systematic upward progression with increased rank. The three exceptions proved to be ones which were either known or suspected to constitute anomalies in the rank structure. The uniformity of the progression of time-span with rank lends support to those who contend that time-span of discretion is the measure used intuitively by everyone to assess level of work.
