Navy Planning Training – Course Content
Navy Planning. As part of the national security planning process drives DoD, and all military services’ planning efforts, toward a coherent system of plans supporting and supported by all elements of national power. How this planning serves to drive research and development efforts across the DoD.
Military Planning Logic. The extent to which a commander consciously applies problem solving steps varies according to judgment, temperament, memory, and experience. A more experienced commander may quickly reach an effective solution by replacing some planning steps between recognition of the problem and its solution through habit and doctrine, but the planning steps and logic allow a commander who is new to the situation to reach the same solution in only a little more time by going through a mental process of matching and adapting knowledge to the situation.
Commander’s Estimate of the Situation. A commander considers all the circumstances affecting a military situation and arrives at a decision as to a course of action to be taken to accomplish a mission. The decision reached by this process provides a course of action and concept of operations that are then used to develop plans, issue directives and ultimately use the tools and innovations in the “tool box” of the warfare commander.
Planning. Provides the ways for accomplishing the mission and achieving the ends, the objective of all military planning. It is based on facts and the minimum possible number of assumptions and provides for the most effective employment of existing and developing resources, the means, both organic to the organization and those available through other combat support systems
Directives and Orders. After planning, the Commander must clearly communicate to the forces his/her commands and intentions for conducting military operations. The Commander will provide a mission statement (WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY) and convey the commander’s intent, concept of operation, and decisions to subordinates.
Supervision. Rarely will an operation be executed exactly as planned. No matter how carefully planning has been done, the action as it unfolds will differ from the action as planned because of a variety of factors. A system of plans, communication and implementation of those plans must be accompanied by a process of constant evaluation, adjustment and communication. Thus, the process ensures a short but effective decision cycle for the civilian and military leaders to effect national security planning.
