Abstract The paper discusses the need for an easy-to-use, easy-to-administer measure that can capture shared understanding in a team of professionals working together towards a successful performance. In the paper the development of such a measure is described using two empirical studies. Command-and-Control tasks are complex and often dynamic, and a way of capturing the degree of which a team of individuals have a common understanding of priorities in such a task is imperative. Two studies are presented. In the first study students participated in a microworld experiment where they tried to rank order pre-determined factors in order to measure shared understanding. In the second study officers from the Swedish Armed Forces participated in an exercise where they rank ordered self-generated factors.

Title Sharing knowledge: How to highlight proven experience in the swedish Armed Forces Type Conference Article
Year 2009 Publication ISCRAM 2009 – 6th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: Boundary Spanning Initiatives and New Perspectives Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2009
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Hardware; Experience; Knowledge reuse; Knowledge-sharing; Proven experience; Swedish armed forces; Information systems
Abstract Working with the reuse of knowledge is a widespread effort in many organizations, a common approach being to collect and make use of experience. In the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF), this activity is not handled in an organized way, as a methodological and systematic approach to handling experience, transforming experience into Proven experience and finally reusing it in the organization is lacking. This paper is concerned with practitioners' efforts to share and reuse knowledge for the purpose of improving their professional competence. The aim is to develop and provide a method for transforming experience into Proven experience. A solution to this complicated problem could reduce repetition of mistakes and facilitate for of high-quality Proven experience, not just in SwAF but also in other organizations.
