The focus of this proposal is to create a model-based proof-of-concept for a scenario-based, on-demand trainer to enhance and extend current on-the-job training focused towards the development and maintenance of Operational Readiness in senior AOC leaders. The training will be based on an updated model of the leaders' work environment, the knowledge and skills needed to perform effectively in that environment, and will leverage lessons learned collected to date to provide content for a contextually rich scenario-based training. In Phase II a prototype trainer and effectiveness metrics for a single position, JFACC, will be developed and models and a detailed plan as to how to extend the trainer to include other key leadership positions such as (AOC-Director, Chief of Combat Ops, Chief of Combat Plans, Chief of Strategy, Chief of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance, etc.) will be provided. Throughout the process, there will be a heavy reliance upon both existing documentation and SME review to ensure the appropriate levels of fidelity and accuracy of both content and context within the training environment.
