This course aims at providing students an understanding of capability science and how it is used in achieving strategic organisational goals in defence as well as in a broader context. It also focuses on teaching mechanisms required to analyse and develop such capabilities. The students are exposed to a number of analytical techniques used to identify, analyse, evaluate and choose between capability options.

At the successful completion of this course, students will understand the concept of capabilities and capability based planning, enhance their skills in analysing capability gaps and generating options to address these gaps, develop skills in analysing capability options and developing coherent and informative business cases to present their analysis to decision makers, and learn decision making techniques under risk for single and multiple attribute decision problems.
