Abstract:

The Staff Group Trainer Project was a research and development effort sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences in coordination with the Force XXI Program. The project produced two training support packages TSP--battalion and brigade--designed to train these staffs to more effectively and efficiently communicate within and between staff sections, command post, and the unit commander. Based on tactical scenarios developed for the Virtual Training Program, both TSPs focused on staff functions that support the military decision-making process within the execution phase of the movement to contact, deliberate attack, battalion defense in sector and brigade area defense missions. The TSP design and development were based on lessons learned from previous Virtual Training Program efforts, structured design methodology, and adult learning principles. This report provides details on the Staff Group Trainer Projects history, methodology, and lessons learned.
