Research Institution
The goal of this effort is to design and successfully deploy the methods and tools to i) more accurately assess individual decision-making effectiveness, and ii) help train military decision makers to dramatically, and predictably, improve their decision-making skills . The envisioned tool supporting these capabilities is referred to as SuperCision, reflecting its support for Battlespace Superiority Through Better Decision Making. This technology will provide decision-makers with the decision-making skills needed for decisive victory. The approach involves the innovative use of Bayesian nets to determine key decision maker evaluation factors (e.g., decisiveness, situational awareness, avoidance of decision traps), evaluate decision maker areas of potential strength and weakness, generate specialized training and experience-building exercises, and predict expected decision-making performance from incremental investments in that training.
