Abstract
This report examines DRDC CORA’s historical and future capacity to perform traditional (quantitative) operational research (OR) by examining the past, present, and future demographics of its OR defence scientists (DS’s). Trends related to the demographics of CORA’s OR DS’s were analyzed with respect to the size of the population, its distribution with respect to DS level, age and experience based on data from 1997-2006. Past hiring, attrition and career progression trends were also examined. Historical trends were used to develop a career progression model to simulate the future demographics of the OR DS population out to 2025. Results were interpreted from a strategic HR planning perspective with recommendations made regarding future HR strategies.
