Abstract:

Personnel in Infantry units have observed that battalion staffs have difficulty achieving staff synchronization. Research suggests that part of the problem is that frequently staff officers are placed in staff positions without sufficient training. This report presents results of six Officer Advance Course surveys in which officers were asked to describe their background experiences and any training they had prior to assuming staff positions. Both active and reserve component personnel were surveyed. Officer advance course, Battle staff synchronization, Battalion staff training
