  1. IMT COA Evaluation Brief

  2. Degree of Integration – No change Shared Training – Established benchmark (75 BOLC I Tasks) Best Educational Outcome – No change Train Ahead – N/A Duration – No change WO Accessions - Added Evaluation Criteria

  3. Title: WO ACCESSIONS Description: Impact on WO accessions Unit of Measure: Number of applicants Benchmark: SMDR Formula: More is better

  4. IMT: OCS / WOCS • Facts • Course lengths differ: OCS is 14 wks OCS RTI Course Length (#Hrs) WOCS is 5 wks or 7 wks • WOCS RTI Course Length (#Hrs) • No branch tech training in OCS/WOCS • Needs analysis is valid – leader development gap is relatively small • CMD guidance/intent and ATLDP • Demographics: Rank, experience, prior military education • Current TLO comparison: 89% equiv • WO integrated into BOLC II by FY09 • Purpose of OCS/WOCS is to: • 1) Assess readiness and potential for commissioning or appointment • 2) Prepare for progressive and continuing development • 3) Share a common goal that each graduate possess the character, leadership, integrity, and other attributes essential to a career of exemplary service to the nation. • (AR 350-1, para 3-26) • Assumptions • Integrated training and education increases formal functional relationships – establishes informal professional relationships • WO Accessions will be negatively affected by an increase in course length • If instruction time is reduced, potential exists to reduce educational outcome of branch officers • WO numbers may decrease due to greater competition with OCS

  5. COA 1Current Configuration: Maintain separate OCS and WOCS courses. COA 2Full Integration: Integrated student body with identical curriculum and training environment. COA 3Phased and Tailored (Shared Training Environment): Identical common core curriculum phase I with a separate cohort focused phase II. COA 4Phased and Tailored (Separate Training Environment): Identical common core curriculum phase I with a separate cohort-focused phase II.

  6. COA 1: Current Configuration (plus)Maintain separate OCS and WOCS courses. Description:This course of action calls for no change in the current execution of officer candidate preparation for both warrant officers and second lieutenants. Course length, location and faculty for both OCS and WOCS remain separate for each school, and students are not integrated. Appropriate curriculum is shared. Gaps in training needs are addressed. RC OCS and WOCS would also remain separate. WOCS at Fort Rucker/Bragg + State RTIs OCS at Fort Benning + State RTIs

  7. COA 1: Current Configuration Plus • Criteria • Degree of Integration -- • +/- Meets partial intent of Command guidance / intent or ATLDP recommendations • (ATLDP WO Study Annex F, E-135-136, E-138 and TRADOC CTG, para 1, 4 & 5 and • CAC CG Priority, p. 7, para 5a(3)(f) and CAC CDR’s FRAGO 1 to OPORD 04-261A, para 3B5a) • - Does not increase understanding of the role of WOs across the cohorts during OCS • (ATLDP WO Study Final Report, Strategic Conclusions and Recommendations, para. 17) • + While not part of WOCS, BOLC II aids in increasing WO leadership skills. • Shared Training – • + 75 Total Tasks, 67 shared, 6 are covered in BOLC II and remaining 2 appropriate for inclusion as • shared training • 3) Best Educational Outcomes (Right Training)-- • + WOCS recognizes experiential differences of candidates (tailored) • (TRADOC CTG, dtd 26 Jun 06, para 1, 4 and 5) • + BOLC II address the additional educational outcomes not currently in the WO IMT • Train Ahead (Right Time) - NA • Accessions • => Should remain the same

  8. COA 2: Full Integration Integrated student body with identical curriculum and training environment. Description:All candidates attend school together with appropriate mix of officer and WO at the existing locations (AC and RC). All candidates receive same common core curriculum. Two course lengths provided to acknowledge prior experience (i.e., similar to current WOCS structure). Leverages resources from both OCS / WOCS programs (facilities, instructors, etc). Officers & Warrant Officer Candidates 100% Integrated at Fort Benning + State RTIs Officers & Warrant Officer Candidates 100% Integrated at Fort Rucker + State RTIs dL Short Course dL Short Course = Long Course Long Course

  9. COA 2: Full IntegrationIntegrated student body with identical curriculum and training environment. • Criteria • 1) Degree of Integration– • + Accomplishes Command guidance / intent or ATLDP recommendations • (ATLDP WO Study Annex F, E-135-136, E-138 and TRADOC CTG, para 1, 4 & 5 and • CAC CG Priority, p. 7, para 5a(3)(f) and CAC CDR’s FRAGO 1 to OPORD 04-261A, para 3B5a) • + Increases understanding of the role of WOs across the cohorts • (ATLDP WO Study Final Report, Strategic Conclusions and Recommendations, para. 17) • Potential for undermining cultural differentiation between LT and WO through over familiarity • Shared Training – • + Increased leadership training focused at small unit level • - Commanders are more likely to use WO in Branch officer positions • + 100% of 75 Total Tasks trained • + Sharing of lessons learned and military experience • Best Educational Outcomes (Right Training)– • + BOLC II addresses the additional educational outcomes not currently in the WO IMT • + Integrated course recognizes experiential differences of candidates (tailored) • - If instruction time is reduced, potential exists to reduce educational outcome of branch officers

  10. COA 2: Full IntegrationIntegrated student body with identical curriculum and training environment (Cont) 4) Train Ahead (Right Time)– NA 5) Accessions – - RC WO numbers may decrease if course duration increases - AC WO numbers may decrease due to greater competition with OCS - May impact WO throughput due to longer courses and fewer graduations

  11. IMT COA COMPARISON

  12. MEL 4 COA Evaluation Brief

  13. MEL 4 • Facts • 13 WOSC courses/yr & ~ 752 student load/yr • 2 ILE courses/yr & ~ 1200 student load/yr • 3 Satellite Campuses ~ 400 student load/yr • No branch functional or technical training in WOSC • Officer functional training is part of ILE • Civilian education requirements differ • Course lengths differ • Redesign must be TATS

  14. MEL 4 • Assumptions • Needs analysis is valid • Branch proponents will address SWO functional or technical training requirements • ARFORGEN will be supported during course design/development • Senior WO roles are increasing and expanding beyond strictly technical SME • Integrated training and education increases formal and informal professional relationships between cohorts. • Warrant Officers can attend the ILE Common Core without jeopardizing accreditation; however must be able to perform graduate-level work.

  15. MEL 4 COA Options COA 1Current Configuration: Maintain separate ILE and WOSC courses and curriculum. COA 2Full Integration: Course location and the TLOs are the same. COA 3ILE CC Integration with SWO specific technical education: Integrated student body with identical common core curriculum and location. Phase II, SWO technical track TBD. COA 4Phased and Tailored: Segregated Phase I tailored common core at WOCC, followed by SWO technical Phase II by Proponent (TBD). COA 5Proponent Executed: Proponent schools conduct SWO tailored Common Core with a SWO technical track (TBD).

  16. Evaluation Criteria • Degree of Integration • Shared Training (Curriculum) • Best Educational Outcome (Right Training) • Train Ahead (Right Time) • Course Duration • Resource Requirements

  17. WOSC COA COMPARISON

  18. MEL 4 COA Evaluation Backup Slides

  19. Title: Shared Training (Curriculum) Description:Integrated Training (Live-Virtual-Constructive) w/Officer & SWO performing their specific roles and missions; maximum understanding of SWO roles and responsibilities within the Officer Corps. Unit of Measure:Appropriate shared training task opportunities Benchmark: # of appropriate shared training task opportunities in each course Formula: <current is disadvantage; > current is advantage; more is better (more is not necessarily better; appropriate is better)

  20. WOSC COA COMPARISON

  21. Degree of Integration • COA 1 = (1) No integration • COA 2 = (5) Full integration • COA 3 = (4) Common core integration • COA 4 = (3) Cohorts are segregated • COA 5 = (2) Cohorts are segregated, and SWO are segregated

  22. Shared Training (Curriculum) • COA 1 = (1) No shared training • COA 2 = (2) Not appropriate due to low percentage of CC applicability • COA 3 = (3) Not appropriate; with functional/technical training • COA 4 = (5) Appropriate with functional/technical training • COA 5 = (4) Appropriate with functional/technical training; however branch centric

  23. Best Educational Outcome (Right Training) • COA 1 = (1) No change • COA 2 = (2) Not appropriate; no functional/technical track • COA 3 = (3) Not appropriate; with functional/technical track • COA 4 = (5) Appropriate and tailored; with functional/technical track • COA 5 = (4) Appropriate and tailored; branch centric

  24. Train Ahead (Right Time) • COA 1 = (3) Component timing differences preclude evaluation • COA 2 = (3) Component timing differences preclude evaluation • COA 3 = (3) Component timing differences preclude evaluation • COA 4 = (3) Component timing differences preclude evaluation • COA 5 = (3) Component timing differences preclude evaluation * Note: For the RC, SWO PME is not de-linked from promotion.

  25. Course Duration • COA 1 = (5) Shortest time • COA 2 = (1) Longest time • COA 3 = (2) Second longest time • COA 4 = (3.5) Appropriate time • COA 5 = (3.5) Appropriate time

  26. MEL 1 COA Evaluation Brief

  27. Evaluation Criteria • Degree of Integration • Shared Training • Best Educational Outcome (Right Training) • Train Ahead (Right Time) • Course Duration

  28. MEL1: SSC / WOSSC • Facts • Civilian ed requirements differ: - SSC = graduate degree considered in selection • Course lengths differ: - SSC CC is 3.5 months - WOSSC is 2 wks • Redesign must be TATS • Redesign supports ARFORGEN • Command guidance / Intent and ATLDP recommendations • Demographics considerations (rank, experience, prior military and civilian education) • Number of courses/yr & student load/course • No branch tech training in WOSSC • SSC is competitive: approx 30% (350 of 1300) of a year group attend resident; 150 of the non-selects that apply are selected for non-resident SSC • Purpose of : SSC – study of development and employment of landpower in a joint, interagency, intergovernmental and multinational environment; prepare for strategic leadership WOSSC – broad “how the Army runs” knowledge to operate effectively at the highest organizational levels of the Army • WOSSC recently redesigned (2005)

  29. MEL1: SSC / WOSSC • Assumptions • CW5 utilization assignments are at BDE & higher level. • Needs analysis is valid – leader development training is just as important as technical training. • ARFORGEN will support up to a 12 week course for CW4/CW5s. • CW4/CW5s roles are increasing and expanding beyond strictly technical SME. • CW4/CW5srequire better training and education to ensure they can perform their roles as advisors, system experts, systems integrators, and fill key leadership positions during full spectrum operations in the COE. • CW4/CW5s need staff skills to develop effective interface with adjacent headquarters, government agencies and contractors to manage command-wide and worldwide programs (JIIM). • CW4/CW5 attendance at resident SSC may affect LTC/COL selection rate. • SSC selectees have met the MEL4 and civilian education requirements. • Integrated training and education increases formal functional relationships and informal professional relationships.

  30. COA 1: Current Configuration Maintain separate SSC and WOSSC courses and curriculum. Description: This course of action calls for no change in the current execution of MEL1 education for both LTC/COLs and CW4/CW5s. Curriculum and faculty for both SSC and WOSSC remain the same for each school and students are not integrated. SSC at Carlisle (and alternate locations) WOSSC at Fort Rucker

  31. COA 2: Full Integration Integrated student body with identical curriculum and training environment. Description:All MEL1 students attend school together at Carlisle Barracks, Fort Rucker, or SSC alternate locations, such as SAMS fellowship, Naval War College and National War College. All officers receive instruction using the same curriculum and must meet the same standards for graduation. Leverages resources from all SSC/WOSSC programs (facilities, instructors, etc.), including SSC alternate locations. SSC SSC SSC CW4/CW5s and LTC/COLs who attend are 100% integrated at Fort Rucker CW4/CW5s and LTC/COLs who attend are 100% integrated at SSC Alternate Locations CW4/CW5s and LTC/COLs who attend are 100% integrated at Carlisle Barracks or or Civilian education requirement: Bachelor’s degree

  32. COA 3: Phased and Tailored Tailored common core at WOCC followed by assignment oriented training at branch location. Description: Separate training environment from LTC/COLs. Common core phase uses selected curriculum from SSC, as appropriate for CW4/CW5s; may include VTT and/or shared instructors. However, specific curriculum is focused for WO needs. All CW4/CW5s trained together at Fort Rucker for common core regardless of functional / technical branch. Will require increase of course length. Phase II training requirements and location determined by Branch. Phase I Phase II Selected CC curriculum from SSC and WOSSC for CW4/CW5s Technical + at Fort Rucker Determined by Branch

  33. COA 4: Phased, Tailored, & Partial Integration Tailored common core at WOCC followed by assignment oriented training at branch location &/or selection to SSC. Description: Phase I is a separate training environment from LTC/COLs. Common core phase uses selected curriculum from SSC and other sources, as appropriate for CW4/CW5s; however, specific curriculum is focused for WO needs. All CW4/CW5s trained together at Fort Rucker for common core regardless of functional / technical branch. Will require increase of course length. Phase II training requirements and location determined by Branch. In addition to WOSSC a limited number of WOs to be competitively selected for attendance at SSC. Board Selection Integrated SSC (Civilian Ed requirement: BA/BS degree) Phase I Selected CC curriculum from SSCs and WOSSC for all CW4/CW5s Phase II Technical Determined by Branch at Fort Rucker

  34. COA Criteria COA Scoring: High = 4 Low = 1
