Abstract

This research identified competencies required to command a brigade. Interviews and surveys of military personnel provided a multisource perspective of brigade command competencies, including the proficiency level needed for each competency. Thirty-nine competencies were identified and categorized into 4 training-oriented clusters: leadership skills, operational skills, personal capabilities, and knowledge base. Participants reported their preferred methods to develop the competencies within each cluster. The competencies can be used to assess training effectiveness and to identify potential training gaps. Additionally, the model has utility outside of the military, as it describes a framework for leaders who must bridge the gap between organizational and strategic leadership.
