Abstract:

This document describes research conducted to create an innovative, Soldier-friendly method for developing tactics, techniques, and procedures TTP. The approach built on previously developed methodology, blending knowledge elicitation techniques and simulation-based vignettes to produce a flexible set of tools to structure and guide the TTP development process. The resulting toolbox was implemented with Soldiers to obtain feedback and ideas for improving the method. When groups of Soldiers used the toolbox to develop focused TTP, the method proved to work well with a variety of missions and tactical conditions. The clarity and quality of the tools as well as the effectiveness of the method were assessed using multiple measures. The Soldiers rated the effectiveness of the methods various components positively. The quality of the resulting TTP increased across exercises practice effect and groups resulting from toolbox improvements between groups. Lessons learned about various aspects of the methodology are included.
