Abstract
"Mirum proposes to develop a training intervention that targets the leader and team attributes needed for effectiveness in military multinational teams. This effort will also yield a diagnostic tool that can be used to appraise the need for traininginterventions in multinational teams. Anticipated changes in the military's operating environment argue for the ascendant importance of attributes that promote effectiveness and adaptability in multinational teams. The training interventions to bedesigned as part of this Phase I effort will be grounded in conceptual principles of leading multinational and multicultural teams, and will provide assessment, automated feedback, and progress-tracking and other features consistent with identified bestpractices in leadership and team training. The proposed team and leader training program and the multicultural diagnostic tool is expected to assist the Army in training, assessment, and development of its officer corps, particular those who will have to work with multicultural and multinationalteams. The techniques and methods constructed as part of this proposal will be generic in the sense that, with domain and process specific modifications, they will be applicable to other DoD services and more generally, to leadership and team training innon-DoD and non-governmental service sectors."
