The Swedish Army has transformed from 31 brigades to two in 20 years. At the same time, the Swedish area of interest has increased from 60 km from the Swedish border to 6000 km from Brussels. The primary mission of the Swedish Armed Forces has changed from invasion defending operations to international interoperable operations. This overall change also has increased the necessity to become more interoperable with partners in the Nordic, European Union, NATO, and Partnership for Peace PfP countries. The NATO methods OCC and Core Team Effectiveness CTEF together with the alignment of the Swedish MARTA provides the basis to assess, evaluate, and accredit the Swedish Armed Forces. This paper presents a Systemic Governance of Capabilities, Tasks, and Processes applied to the requirement specification for the core battalion in Nordic Battle Group 2015. The method consists of analyzing and compiling the battalions capabilities, tasks, activities, and processes in their context and in relation to each other down to platoon level. The Systemic Governance Approach is a collection of methods that together provide that the complex nature of military force structures and their tasks and processes span a large operational context. The Systemic Governance Approach is presented in the following sections Scenario-Based Training Modeling of Force Requirements to Support Scenario-Based Training Creating Mission Essential Task and Collective Task Lists Assessment, Evaluation, and Accreditation Methods System Architecture for a Support System for Evaluation A Case Study of Evaluation of a Training Event and Conclusions.
