Abstract:

Systematic approaches to training or instructional systems development ISD were developed during World War II to address the pressing and technical needs of the military for trained personnel. Intuitive, random and varied ways of teaching soldiers to fly, march, maintain equipment, lead others and generate battle strategies were undependable. ISD provided a broad prescription for looking at men and women and their work and figuring out ways to teach them to do it. The General URL officer presently receives no formal training as a division officer nor as a department head. It has been the individual officer responsibility to develop leadership skills vis-a-vis subspecialty expertise. The three warfare communities surface, air and submarine do have division officer and department head schools but they are specifically designed to prepare officers for at sea billets.
