Cognitive Technologies, Inc.
Offers the interesting-looking "Critical Thinking Training for the Battlefield" - "This training aims to teach officers how to think critically and to make better decisions on the battlefield. It is not a general course on logic, decision making, or critical thinking that just happens to use military examples. The lessons it teaches are fully embedded in realistic Army contexts and are motivated by tasks and challenges that arise in that context. There are no abstract rules that officers must learn and then figure out how to translate and apply to the military field. Nevertheless, this training is based on a methodology that can be applied to any area of decision making, including business."
