Methodology

This one-week course is comprised of interactive plenary lectures, followed by brief, moderated Q&A sessions alternating with facilitated work in small syndicates. Case studies and scenarios are also considered to identify best-practice and lessons identified. How assessment is practiced in civilian organisations is also discussed to identify similarities and differences with military operations assessment. Language proficiency of 3333 is considered the minimum standard required and fluency in the English language is desirable.
