  • Combat Hunter

    CPG field researchers observed training and participated in the course of instruction. This “Attack the Network” activity involved sensemaking in complex, adaptive settings that were characterized by a highly adaptive adversary, a rapidly evolving knowledge base, and asymmetric behaviors that make up cultural networks. Since most of the performance employed by highly skilled combat profilers involved the use of intuition, tacit knowledge, and lived experiences, CPG researchers used qualitative methods to capture the expertise and quantitative analysis to assess specific aptitudes.
