Abstract : Research conducted by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) Infantry Forces Research Unit show that functional area training is typically not available to prepare the maneuver branch officers for their assigned staff duties. The Brigade Commander's Battle Staff Handbook, presented here, offers a partial solution to this problem. This handbook provides commanders with a convenient source of battle staff specific content for immediate use by their staff. This product served as the front-end analysis and task list for the Battle Staff Training System (BSTS), a CD-ROM program designed to meet the needs of the Reserve Component units. This product, as part of a larger project on staff training, was sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as a part of the Simulation in Training for Advanced Readiness (SIMITAR) advanced technology demonstration.
