Army Transformation and wider operational demands are placing increased demands on Army training and The Army School System (TASS), which is responsible for the vast majority of institutional training in both the Active Component (AC) and Reserve Component (RC). This report identifies policies and options for increasing TASS’s contribution to Army readiness while improving the integration of the AC and RC training systems. The study recommends, first, that TASS adopt private sector practices, organizational models, and technologies to improve its approach for developing interactive media instruction (IMI) training (a key form of future training). The study also recommends that TASS expand its training delivery options by developing a more effective local training system to conduct selected courses and support other unit training needs. Finally, TASS should seek to leverage available training resources to improve integration of AC-RC training institutions and provide additional training options. Suggestions are presented for three potential pilot studies-low-cost demonstration projects-that would help assess the costs and tradeoffs involved in the overall change strategy.
