Abstract:

This report documents the development of a scenario tool set with variable factors that can be used to assess or train leader skills as the Army transitions to the Future Force. The components of the tool set can be tailored to produce 45 basic scenarios. Each scenario can be altered by injecting events to create more exercise conditions. All source documents needed for leader planning are available, to include supplemental map boards each can be modified to conform to the desired exercise requirements. A Users Manual containing a step-by-step guide and a specific example of how to use the scenario tool set is available to assist evaluators and trainers. Use of these scenarios requires advanced planning to select the modules, components, and incidents to create the desired situation. The scenarios and resulting exercise vignettes, administered in a constructive or virtual simulation, will provide a realistic representation of expected battlefield events to allow leader skills to be assessed or trained. The scenario tool set can be used to train leader skills or research the impact on leaders of changes in organizations or technological capabilities. It can also be used for generating standardized scenarios for analysis purposes.
