People are Womack Army Medical Center’s most important resource. The Manpower Branch’s challenge is to ensure that WAMC has the right number of people to do the job and an efficient organizational structure which will best use its personnel. This becomes a complex task as the Army, on a Congressionally-limited budget, is constantly preparing itself to fight the battle of the future with new and modernized weapons, doctrine, and organizations. Manpower personnel help WAMC managers, using analytical tools, determine the amount of work to be done, the number of people needed to do the work and the manner in which the organization will operate to accomplish the mission.
