Front Cover
U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, 1998 - Command of troops
"Tacit knowledge is defined as knowledge grounded in experience, intimately related to action, and not well supported by formal training and doctrine. Tacit knowledge of leadership used by Army officers at three different levels of command have been identified, assessed, and developed into assessment inventories for each level. The inventories have been construct validated and proven to predict leadership effectiveness ratings at each level and to do so better than measures of verbal reasoning ability, tacit knowledge for business managers, or experience. This report summarizes the development process and identifies and discusses findings from the development process that have potential application in Army leadership development. The relationship of tacit knowledge to the future of military leadership is also discussed."--DTIC.
