Abstract:

We conducted several activities to begin research and development on a MAU model to support decision making in training. First, we interviewed training Subject Matter Experts SMEs from private and public organizations. These structured interviews enabled us to identify common training decision issues. Second, we began to determine what training tools, aids, guides, probes, and tips are needed to address key issues. We examined several aids that exist in both public and private organizations. Third, we reviewed the scientific and practitioner literature to begin to develop the content and structure of information sources included within the product. This included the development of an index of training terms, the review of metal analyses, and categorization of current literature. We also developed a prototype of a decision making aid that reflects the research and theory found in both practitioner and research literatures and expertise.
