Abstract [en]

The modern battlefield has shown that experiences that personnel encounter are crucial for the organisation and units to learn from. This is done with a bottom-up culture where the organisation learns from the unit’s experiences linked to enemy behaviour and the use of own working methods. By adapting to these experience units can be allowed to facilitate tactical adaptation on the battlefield. A method to gather these experiences are debriefings. They are used in different forms, where psychological debriefings are advocate in organisations that operate in stressful environments. 

The purpose of this study is to explore the Swedish army’s methods of debriefing and with support of theories based on psychological debriefing and group development explain the potential of a debriefing. The study uses a qualitative case studies, by using focus groups to gather empirical data to explore the actual outcome of the methods used on smaller units in the Swedish army. 

This study contributes with a deeper understanding of how debriefing methods are used and can be used to reach efficiency with the implementation of working methods and emotional aspects within the individual. With this efficiency and support from the organisation, the units can be able to reach synergy within the group and therefore gain the ability for tactical adaptation on a modern battlefield.
