Abstract
This is the final report for work done by KMG Associates (the contractor) on the Development of a Procedure to Assess Command Challenges Research Project. This project involved the development of a guide for writing Command Challenges (CCs); the collection and analysis of a new set of CCs from all three environments (army, navy and air force); the revision of the CC Assessment Tool (CCAT); and the development of a manual describing how to use the CCAT. The research methodology consisted of the contractor compiling a total of 50 descriptions of events with command challenges (CCs) related to a focal or central person based on the new guide for writing CCs. These CCs were then evaluated by expert reviewers using the revised assessment tool (CCAT) based on the Pigeau and McCann theoretical framework for C2. During this process the evaluators provided input for the CC writing guide, the revised CCAT, and the guide for using the CCAT. It was concluded that the methodology of collecting and evaluating CCs is a sound approach for assessing the validity of Pigeau and McCann theoretical framework for C2 and that the CC writing guide, the revised CCAT, and the guide for using the CCAT will make future validation of the framework more effective.
