Abstract : This paper introduces a candidate needs assessment model that has unique potential for identifying military training needs. During the training planning process, planners frequently and inadvertently confuse training strategies (means) with training results (ends). One reason for this confusion is the inherent difficulty in accurately specifying military training needs. The complex nature of military training needs is explored and the potential benefit of the Organizational Elements Model as a planning tool is presented. (Author)
