Training for crisis decision making - An approach based on plan adaptation

The human ability to take the right decisions is very important in real world critical situations. An interesting problem always worth being investigated concerns how to teach decision making skills to humans. The real nature of taking decisions is extremely difficult to describe in detail and, as a consequence, training it according to fixed protocols is also challenging. This is because it comes out as a combination of natural talent, competence from previous experience, ability to quick reasoning, leadership, resilience to stress, and so on. We have addressed this problem while building a new learning environment to train crisis decision makers.
