The participants completed self-reflective Effective Command reports following their completion of structured training. The participants received minimal training on how to use the tools. There was no standardisation of the assessment measures, as such this data is only indicative of the completion of the training rather than being deemed suitable for in-depth analysis. It can also be utilised for self-reflective review of an individual’s own performance.

Incident Monitoring

The participants within this group are all operational commanders who fulfil an incident monitoring role for their organisation. These monitoring officers were trained and standardised internally by their organisation, so there was an organisational consistency in ‘what good looks like’. However, this consistency was not present between different organisations. When used in conjunction with formal command competence assessments, this dataset will complement that generated using simulation or other training methodologies. This broad dataset will provide the organisation greater confidence in the integrity of the data collated throughout all phases of the training cycle and subsequently the competence of their personnel.

Formal Assessments

As per the guidance document by Klampfer et al. (2001), all assessors were sector competent and received training in non-technical skills and the use of the Effective Command behavioural marker framework. These assessors were re-validated annually.
