Abstract:

The ability to understand and influence foreign decision makers within the cultural terrain is increasingly recognized as a core warfighter competency. In response to this requirement, the U.S. Department of Defense has made it a priority to foster the development of cultural competence via education and training curricula within its service arms. The objective of this report was to develop a 3C model for the General Purpose Force population in the U.S. military, based on data from operators with experience in various cross-cultural environments, which provides prioritization, organization, and specification. A model, which prioritizes those cross-cultural competencies that are most important.
