A Review of Recent Research and Development on Military Leadership, Command, and Team Function.
Crawford, Meredith P.
Part A of this paper is a general introduction to the state of training technology and studies of motivation and attitudes in learning. Part B deals with research on training for leadership, command, and team function. It is suggested that, during the decade prior to 1964, curriculum studies derived from examination of jobs and systems made greater contributions than research on training media. Studies leading to specific military training programs for current and future systems cover the interpersonal aspects of leadership and command by commissioned and noncommissioned officers, organizational and technical aspects of command, and team training. The importance of specific leadership acts and student participation in achieving effective leadership, the nature of job responsibilities, the role of the individual in small military groups, and the nature and formation of individual behavior conducive to teamwork are emphasized.
