Abstract:

In Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations, personnel from different agencies must effectively collaborate despite having different agendas, standard operating procedures, and desired outcomes. Even in SSTR operations, which are fundamentally collaborative, experts in one particular field often have only a rudimentary understanding of other fields. They are unaware of the right questions to ask, and have little experience finding answers to their questions. What is needed is a common training resource that promotes knowledge-sharing and perspective-taking among multiple agencies involved in SSTR operations, through the introduction and application of expert-defined principles of effective SSTR operations. This resource will be based on an innovative approach to scenario-based training involving important historical lessons learned, and will allow a diverse group of trainees to explore how similar events might have produced different results if handled in different ways. To meet these challenges, we propose developing Training Collaboration in Interagency SSTR (TraCIS), a scenario-based training system that promotes interagency collaboration in SSTR operations. The tool will go beyond teaching trainees linear, static rules for behavior to focus on key skills that can be applied across SSTR challenges. It will promote a broader thinking process to facilitate interagency collaboration.
