John Johnston is the host of Ballistic Radio and he teaches firearms with Melody Lauer at Citizen’s Defense Research. CDR has a one-day shooting class called Tests and Standards which is an entire day of assessments. Mike and John discuss how we identify metrics for performance and how those metrics apply in context. Speaking of context, CDR also has a course for The Armed Parent and Guardian, which led to an interesting discussion about the dichotomy of taking training and performance seriously while also enjoying life and having fun. As John succinctly pointed out, everyone’s math is different!

Doing More with Less: Scaling Resources in Major Incidents, Training, and Leadership Development

Whether you are trying to deliver consistent training to thousands of people or manage a major critical incident one thing is for certain: More is not always better. But a lot of tasks at major events are manpower intensive and we need to make the most of the available resources. This is a thought exercise especially for people who work in either really big or really small organizations who want to be able to scale up or down according to their needs, and who need to develop expertise in their front line troops and supervisors.
