Description
The aim of this booklet is to pass on our ‘lessons learned’ with respect to collective training for Canada’s Army Reserve units. Our intent is to stimulate thought, discussion and positive action on collective training for the part-time Army reservists.

Summary
Time is the most precious resource for a Reservist. He or she gives up time that could be spent on studies, a civilian job, or with family to volunteer to help defend our nation. It is vital that this time not be wasted. Good collective training can have a very positive impact on retention and unit effectiveness – troops will attend training they know has been taken seriously and planned effectively. At the lower levels of collective training units are by-and-large left to plan their own events – this book can help any unit do better. It is important to rediscover the tried and true methods of collective training that built the Army Reserve that responded so magnificently when called to that war. This book and the examples it provides will assist Army Reserve units in making collective training more effective.

Excerpt
Successful armies do not turn their troops into automatons nor try to control them from the top, instead they allow considerable latitude, focused on the far-reaching object. A prerequisite for employing auftragstaktik is that subordinates must be well trained, with a sound understanding of the appropriate doctrine.
