Yup. I have always liked the US system. But I prefer boards over written exams. Exams show academic aptitude, of the ability to memorize information; but that does not in its self equal leadership potential. IMHO you get a better feeling for someone with them sitting in front of you and answering challenging questions on various topics.Something similar to how the US has tests, such as trade knowledge, Harassment policy, Codes of Conduct, professionalism, aptitude, ethics, skill, PT, military threshold knowledge, principles of leadership etc prior to advancement. Say a promotion review board. No more checks in the box. No more Acting Lacking. Proper mentoring. Minimal standards are not acceptable. Not everyone is promotion material. Master tradesmen, specialist. Not exactly leadership material. You can make a mistake but you best learn from it. the Americans often remove Leaders from positions due to various infractions they also post that info in their News Feeds.
Also lets get rid of PLQ once and for all.
