Abstract : As a response to Air Combat Command (ACC/A2RT), the 711HPW/RHAS reviewed published literature on critical thinking skills and training to enhance skills as they relate to improving performance of intelligence analysts. While there are many critical training curriculums available in the intelligence community, current literature shows a lack of empirical evidence correlating critical thinking and intelligence analysis. This report suggests some considerations for an effective critical thinking curriculum as it relates to intelligence analysis.
