Abstract : The specific objective of this report is to test earlier work on the assessment of individual capability to perform in real life with reference to the capability to carry responsibility at higher levels of work in both civilian and military organizational settings. In relation to this objective, this report increases scientific understanding of the meaning of human capability in action and of the nature of the psychological processes underlying the level of complexity of action the person can generate, comprehend, and effect; the type of capability they prefer to use; and the growth of capability to act and take responsibility at increasingly complex levels. In this work, the implications of Stratified Systems Theory are examined and applied to military organizational settings.
