Abstract:

This research product contains an instructors manual which describes how to use the Tripwire case study from the Army Excellence in Leadership AXL system within a traditional classroom setting. The manual is intended to help instructors prepare for classroom discussions of leadership challenges and issues embedded within the Tripwire scenario. Because the Tripwire scenario is built around junior leadership issues in Iraq, instructors may find the Tripwire lessons particularly relevant for junior officers who will deploy to the Middle East. However, instructors can tailor Tripwire lessons to suit a broader training audience. The manual contains a summary and hard copy of the Tripwire case study, a description of potential teaching objectives and related discussion questions, and guidance on how to facilitate an effective classroom discussion. An overview of the AxL.net system, technical requirements, and contact information for obtaining the case study is also provided.
