Abstract:

A front-end analysis regarding the expansion of the use of computers in instruction at the United States Army Command and General Staff College CGSC was conducted. U.S. Army field grade officers serving in command and staff positions gain the needed knowledge, skills, and abilities KSA by serving in a variety of assignments before they assume those positions. Formal schooling is included. While an officially compiled list of required qualifications for the positions does not exist, they can be inferred from the duties and responsibilities of the incumbents as defined in Army doctrinal publications. The inferences made for the CGSC front-end analysis are reported here. Resulting data are analyzed for significant features and relevance to the use of computers both for performing necessary functions and for teaching needed KSA.
