Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility and usefulness of applying Duty Module methodology in the front-end analysis of the Regular Course, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College CGSC. A Duty Module is a cluster of related job tasks that tend to go together organizationally and occupationally in meaningful ways. Duty Modules were designed for use by U.S. Department of the Army, Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel planners in matching personnel with Officer Personnel Management System OPMS job requirements. Duty Modules and their associated data of task criticality, level and time of performance can assist the curriculum designer in establishing a need for training and allocating resources to support the curriculum. The study attempts to correlate the application of Duty Module concepts at CGSC with the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC requirements for systems engineering of the CGSC curriculum using the TRADOC Instructional Systems Development ISD Model. A front-end analysis model using Duty Modules and the ISD process is developed and applied to structuring the CGSC curriculum.
