Abstract:

This project describes a computer-mediated cognitive leadership training program for helping leaders of a Joint Task Force overcome cultural barriers between services. The program focuses on the brigade level and higher echelons of service warfighting units, and it is intended as a supplement to intermediate-level formal service schools. The training environment features a user-friendly interface based on the Decisive Action platform, which provides a controlled environment for leadership skill training. The proposed scenario places the participant in a crisis situation as the commanding officer of a Joint Force operation. A crisis situation requires information from a wide range of information sources and categories, and the trainee, as the commander, must assess the situation with the information provided. The trainees are assessed on how well they adapt to unforeseen circumstances that are introduced during the course of the experiment.
