Helping Teams Detect and Assess Threats


Challenge

To counter the impact of improvised explosive devices on military convoys, we developed a scale that measured team threat detection and assessment as well as designed a perceptual judgment task.

Approach

The scale was administered through a bird’s eye view observation technique during simulated pre-deployment training exercises.

Results

Results provided concrete ways in which team communication, coordination, and cooperation and overall team performance (i.e., accurate detection of threats) could be improved.

The Bottom Line

Teams work effectively when communication is shared, when members are coordinated, and when cooperation is the central focus. With our knowledge and experience, we can help your team perform optimally.
