Abstract
What gets measured, gets improved. This widely accepted adage is as relevant to the military as it is to business. Measuring mission command has a unique set of challenges. Mission command must be flexible, but metrics are typically fixed. Mission command covers a broad set of interrelated factors, metrics are typically limited in scope. The military situation can change in an instant, metrics often rely on obsolete data. Micro-level events can have huge impacts on a mission, metrics are often aggregated without regard to domain subtleties. The Veloxiti Team (Veloxiti and IAI), propose developing a Measure of Performance (MOP) and Measure of Effectiveness (MOE) based metrics collection tool that will empower Army Commanders to provide actionable guidance during a mission. The Veloxiti Team will follow a scenario based, agile development approach. IAI will apply their Performance Assessment in Complex Environments (PACE) technique to elicit MOPs and MOEs. The MOPs and MOEs will be assessed for commonality and template MOPs and MOEs will be developed. This will allow soldiers to parameterize and assign MOPs and MOEs to military tasks and objectives that are modeled in the knowledge base that underlies Veloxitis GPR Commanders Critical Assessment tool (C-CAT).
