Abstract:

The development of strategic thinking ability requires intentional development over time. To facilitate early self-awareness and practice of strategic thinking, an assessment was created for the strategic thinking mindset. The strategic thinking mindset refers to an approach to solving ambiguous problems that is consistent with the requirements of strategic thinking, characterized by intellectual flexibility, humility and inclusiveness. This research product includes all materials necessary to administer, score, and discuss the results of the Strategic Thinking Mindset Test STMT. The STMT produces an overall score and three characteristic scores. This assessment is useful for group or individual self-reflection and discussion of how elements of strategic thinking are present and can be practiced by Company-grade Army leaders. The products development is described in Technical Report 1361 Development and Preliminary Validation of the Strategic Thinking Mindset Test STMT Weyhrauch, 2017.
