Abstract : In an effort to enhance Soldier and team performance, the FY16 Army Study Program awarded the Armys Maneuver Center of Excellence and The MITRE Corporation funds to conduct a study to develop Soldier/team performance-focused training support packages for operational and institutional training. This report summarizes the study teams process, products, and recommendations for augmenting an existing operational training program and institutional program of instruction with Soldier/team performance skills. Additionally, the report describes Soldier and trainer skills and attitudes as they relate to Soldier/team performance training to aid the Army in understanding the tasks and preparation required for Soldiers, trainers, and instructors and specifically to address Soldier/team performance training and instruction objectives. Finally, the study presents the design for an event in which the Army could test a Soldier/team performance-augmented unit training program and an institutional program of instruction for effectiveness in integrating cognitive and social communication skills into warrior skills training.
