ICF identified issues and trends in leadership and leader development to conduct an assessment of the quality of leadership and leader development, the contribution of actions and character to leadership, and the effects of climate and situational factors on leadership, and to produce a report of the findings.
Since 2004, ICF International has collaborated with the National Guard Bureau (NGB) on the development and implementation of a strategic attrition and retention research initiative to collect and analyze survey information.
ICF has developed a highly realistic influence and negotiation training system for Army Knowledge Online (AKO) that combines realistic human behavior models, realistic avatars, and expertise in negotiation and resistance techniques.
ICF worked with the U.S. Army to conduct one of the largest organizational assessments the U.S. Army has ever undertaken.
ICF performed a formal analysis of MN ARNG's months-long, four-part reintegration training program, which has since become the model for the National Guard’s nationwide Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program.
ICF International conducted a comprehensive study of Leadership and Leader Development for an Army Technical Branch that included a review of the literature; best practices across other DoD services, Health and Human Services, and private sector; and surveys of the entire populations of officers, non-commissioned officers (NCO), and civilian leaders as well as senior level leader/customers of Technical Branch Services.
ICF created this computer-based simulation that places individual soldiers in culturally realistic and complex decision-oriented social scenarios patterned after actual critical leadership scenarios.
ICF developed simulations for leader development training to improve upon and create additional back end’ developmental resource, starting with the feedback report itself and on through actual web- and simulation-based developmental activities.
The Army Diversity Office (ADO) contracted with ICF International to complete a comprehensive workforce assessment of diversity issues and conduct an analysis of the Department of the Army's (DA) diversity statistics, policies, processes, and practices. The DA contracted ICF to assess and redesign SEDAT for General Officers and Senior Executive Service (SES) to be more diversity centric and less EO/EEO focused, while adhering to DoD course guidance.
ICF International was contracted to conduct anonymous surveys of its active duty and reserve force on a range of sensitive topics, including substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, suicide, and safety/crime.
ICF manages the integration of leading-edge medical simulation and modeling into the basic and continuing medical education of the Air Force Medical Service at all provider levels.
ICF designed and implemented an overarching research plan to aid the Task Force in assessing the effectiveness of DoD and departmental policies and programs in support of recovering, wounded, ill, and injured service members, and offering recommendations for improvements.
ICF International collaborated with the Army Research Institute and the Center for Army Leadership to validate the Core Leader Competency framework that guides training, leader development, self development, and education.
