As part of the Ministry of Defence's ongoing commitment to maximising the full potential of all our personnel, the Chiefs of Staff announced last year an ambitious programme of policy and process reviews. In consultation with the single Services and on reviewing work already in progress, it was agreed that this review would focus on the processes and procedures that lead up to a Promotion Board rather than the Boards themselves. There is no intention to publish this review outside of the Department, rather, it will be used internally to further inform policy development to deliver on departmental ambitions.
