Making Decisions Under Stress: Implications for Individual and Team Training
Making Decisions Under Stress: Implications for Individual and Team Training represents the culmination of a 7-year research project called TADMUS (Tactical Decision Making Under Stress). The goal of the program, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, was to develop training, simulation, decision support, and display principles that would help to mitigate the impact of stress on decision making.
The volume outlines the overall background, research approach, and paradigm employed by TADMUS, with specific focus on research regarding how to train decision making at the individual and team levels—especially how to provide training that will prepare individuals to operate in complex team environments. The chapters explore complex, realistic tasks with experienced Navy participants.
Throughout the book, the authors explore the research implications and the lessons learned that may guide those interested in applying results of the research in operational environments. Although TADMUS focused on a military decision-making environment, it's program of research has applicability across a variety of task environments that pose similar demands on human operators.
This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1998 hardcover edition.
