The United States Army in the past five years has begun a revolutionary change in its concept of training. The Army Training and Evaluation Program (ARTEP) is the realization of this change. The implementation of the ARTEP has not achieved optimal results. Training management decisions at division, brigade, and battalion levels must be identified and their ramifications understood; research has shown certain approaches more beneficial than others. The training/evaluation/control of external exercises using ARTEP has been identified as a universally deficient area. This study, through application of organizational and managerial principles, provides practical guidance to training decision makers from division down to company level. It also provides an improved system for the training/evaluation/control of the external exercise.
