Abstract : Leader development requirements for a knowledge-based force in an information operations (10) environment were examined by the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Analysis Center (TRAC) in the FY 95 Mobile Strike Force Battle Command Experiment (MSF/BC95). There were two types of requirements examined - those which are related to technology literacy and those related to multifunctional (branch and battlefield operating systems (BOS)) literacy. The study issue addressed by this paper is shown in the adjacent box. The specific essential requirements for Information Operations? elements of analysis (EEA) developed in the study plan to support this examination are shown below. The assessments for each of the two areas (technological literacy and multifunctional literacy) will be discussed in turn. Each section EEA: What are the observed and perceived changes in the importance of current leader development compentencies with the implementation of IO? EEA: What shifts in institutional operational assignment, and self development activities - the pillars of leader development - may be required to fulfill IO-oriented requirements for leader development? EEA: What are the potential significant changes in leader development requirements as a result of employing envisioned IO concepts and capabilities? will present the methodology to answer these EEA and address this issue, and present the key study findings.
