The study investigated the effect of experience and training on the performance of military officers in experimental leadership situations. As in a previously reported study conducted with Belgian naval personnel, group performance under trained and experienced officers was not significantly better than performance under untrained recruits. Moreover, years of leadership experience as an officer was uncorrelated either with performance on any of the five different tasks or with group member satisfaction.
