Military Leader Development and Autonomous Learning: Responding to the Growing Complexity of Warfare
Mensch, Kirk G.; Rahschulte, Tim
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v19 n3 p263-272 Fall 2008
The complexity in today's operational military environment and the responsibility of leadership in this environment has exponentially increased over the past century. This trend will continue as global economies, political structures, and technologies continue to evolve. Learner autonomy is recognized as a paramount concern in leadership programs, including military programs. The purpose of this article is to increase awareness of the need for learner autonomy among military leaders; however, the implications may be generalizable to any organization responsible for developing leaders who operate in ambiguous and complex environments.
