If Anything Can Go Wrong, Maybe It Will.
Wager, Jane C.; Rayner, Gail T.
Thirty personnel involved in various stages of the Training Extension Course (TEC) design, development, and distribution process were interviewed by telephone to determine the major problems perceived within each stage of the program, which provides validated extension training wherever U.S. soldiers are stationed. Those interviewed included TEC coordinators, project officers, school managers, contractors, and managers of learning centers. The most common problem are mentioned by those groups was school/contractor differences. Because of the significant impact this area has on the success of the TEC contract, the establishment and maintenance of rapport between school and contractor is vital; means by which these differences and problems in other areas might be resolved were discussed with respondents.
