Abstract : Current instructional systems development (ISD) techniques are not well equipped to identify and effectively provide for team training requirements. While much research aimed at extending the ISD model to team training development is in progress, a systematic approach to meet near-term team training development needs is necessary. This paper provides an overview of an approach we have formulated and used successfully to this end. The approach is based on a functional analysis of the system goals/objectives which the team performance in question supports. The results are then represented systematically in a process model designed to capture the dynamic relationships between system conditions, and categorical team performances. The model is used to develop scenario-based exercise guides, similar to instructor guides for classroom use, but designed to provide instructor guidance regarding training device employment in the administration of effective team training.
