CAPL’s Annual Survey of Army Leadership (CASAL) is a recurring annual CAC initiative, since 2005, to capture
trends in leadership, leader development (LD), the operating environment and special topics. The longitudinal
nature and Army-wide administration of CASAL produces valid and reliable insights that are generalizable and
actionable. The findings inform senior leaders and key stakeholders about the quality and effectiveness of
Army leadership, LD and impacts of the operating environment.
