Abstract Supporting the SAS-081/RSY focus on cognitive and human aspects of defense transformation and the HFM-163/RTG focus on improving organizational effectiveness in coalition operations, this paper presents results from research aimed at identifying factors that are critical for effective cooperation between coalition partners. Past research on teams and organizations is utilized to propose a framework for studying and enhancing collaboration between coalition partners. The sample used was Bulgarian and U.S. military personnel engaged in a tactical-level, joint military training exercise (n=145) held at the Novo Selo Army Training Range, Sliven, Bulgaria. In the framework of the NATO Research and Technology Organization (RTO), this research was implemented by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI), the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL: 711th Human Performance Wing), and the Bulgarian Defense Advanced Research Institute (DARI) at G.S. Rakovski National Defense Academy. Financial support was provided, in part, by the NATO Research and Technology Agency (RTA). Implications for multicultural collaboration are discussed.
