Abstract:

Formal training for senior leadership positions in the USAF is uncommon. USAF leaders typically receive little training to perform at the operational level. Therefore, we propose to develop a tool that will supplement their on-the-job training and benefit a variety of leadership positions. During Phase II, we will develop a prototype trainer and effectiveness metrics for a single position, the Joint Forces Air and Space Component Commander (JFACC). We will also extend the trainer to other key leadership positions, such as the AOC-Director, Chief of Combat Ops, Chief of Combat Plans, Chief of Strategy, and the Chief of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance. Throughout the process, we will rely heavily on existing USAF documentation, USAF Mission Essential Competencies (MECsSM), operational Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), and Aptima's training experts to ensure that the training provides the trainees with a pedagogically sound learning environment.
