Abstract
This research was conducted in support of a Defence Research and Development Canada -Toronto (DRDC Toronto) applied research project (ARP) aimed at developing a Canadian Forces (CF) training toolkit for personnel deploying to operations that adopt the Comprehensive Approach (CA). The CA to operations has been described as the “ability to bring to bear all instruments of national and coalition power and influence upon a problem in a timely, coordinated fashion (i.e., diplomatic, economic, military, and informational)” (Leslie, Gizewski, & Rostek, 2009, p. 11). This means that effective utilization of the CA requires collaboration between civilian and military assets. However, due to organizational differences in goals, culture, motivation, and so on, this collaboration has been challenging in the past (e.g., Holton, Febbraro, Filardo, Barnes, Fraser, &; Spiece, 2011; Thomson, Adams, Filardo, Flear, &; DeWit, 2013; Thomson, Adams, Hall, Brown, &; Flear, 2011). This suggests that effective CF engagement using the CA may require additional training and resources.
