Abstract : This report presents a research approach that has been used to determine the key problems faced by the Australian Defence Organization (ADO) in the iterative development of C31 capability. Repeated application of the approach, combined with knowledge of strategic and technological changes, could be used assess process improvement activities. The approach uses interviews of the stakeholders in the Iterative Capability Development (ICD) process to gather information about the perceived problems. As well as documenting the approach used in a study of the key problems with the ICD process, this report illustrates the application of study design principals, such as methods for minimising potential biases in an interview-based study.
