Research Institution
The goal of this project is to design and successfully deploy the methods and tools to i) more accurately assess individual decision-making effectiveness, ii) help train military decision makers to dramatically, and predictably, improve their decision-making skills, knowledge, and experience, and iii) provide the foundations for helping institutionalize a career-long endeavor to master the art of decision-making among military professionals just as it is now a career-long endeavor to master the art of military leadership . The envisioned tool supporting these capabilities is referred to as SuperCision, reflecting its support for Battlespace Superiority Through Better Decision Making to achieve decisive victory. The approach involves the innovative use of Bayesian nets to determine key decision maker evaluation factors (e.g., timeliness, situation awareness), evaluate decision maker areas of potential strength and weakness, develop specialized training and experience-building plans, and predict expected decision-making performance from incremental investments in that training.
