Abstract : This research note describes the development and evaluation of the Battle Staff Effectiveness Observer/Controller (O/C) Training Program of Instruction. The pilot presentation of the Battle Staff Effectiveness Observer/Controller Training Course provided an opportunity to obtain expert constructive criticism. Limited availability of the O/Cs did not permit a full evaluation of the complete 5-day Program of Instruction (POI). The unevaluated portion of the POI consists primarily of practical exercises. It is recommended that further refinement and pilot presentation be conducted to enhance the prototype POI that is attached.
