Defining and Using the Subject Matter Expert's Role in Transforming Army Training and Education Programs
Wilson, William Rollyn
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The United States Army is a complex and diverse organization that must keep pace with the changing global environment to meet its Constitutional responsibility to fight and win the nation's wars. Today, organizations, doctrine, logistics, material, facilities, concepts, techniques, procedures, and training and education are all changing to meet the Army's requirements to fight in the new global war on terrorism. Given the complex nature of the Army and the transformation that is occurring, constant training and education is required to keep pace and to meet the Army's evolving mission requirements. The traditional training and education model for the U.S. Army is insufficient to meet the meet the demands of the contemporary operational environment characterized by rapid technological insertions and a volatile global political situation (Cianciolo, 2007). The Army leadership wants all soldiers to engage in learning wherever they are located (Byrnes, 2003). In response, the Army is changing education and training models using a blend of resident and nonresident instruction (distributed learning) and training to keep pace with transformation and provide the training and education that meets the Army's needs and helps maintain soldier readiness. The use of Subject Matter Experts, employing the expertise of those on the leading edge in the shifting environment the army now faces, and the expertise found in the resident Army schools with expertise from industry, academia and others that have current skills and knowledge, will help produce what the Army wants; a combat ready soldier.
