In redesigning itself for the future, the Army is grappling with a broad array of issues and challenges. Geopolitical changes, technological capabilities for both operational and training systems, and the demographics of the 21st century force must all be considered. Developments outside the mainstream of military transformation, such as the results of research into group and team behaviors and learning strategies, are also relevant. This paper addresses collective training needs and approaches for future brigade and below staffs. It makes the case for a training transformation, and presents descriptions of the objective training system and the research and policy development needed to construct that system. Three areas are considered 1 issues and conditions that are driving the need for a training transformation 2 a description of the objective training system that will enable the vision of the future brigade capabilities to become reality and 3 recommendations for studies, research, development, and policy formulation needed to achieve the training transformation. This paper will serve as input to a research and development plan for U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences Science and Technology Objective 02, Methods and Measures of Commander-Centric Training, by identifying key research issues and approaches for future training.
