Business leaders inside large organizations find it difficult to convey ideas to senior leadership. Conversely, senior leadership find it difficult to allow subordinate leaders ‘run amok’ with their ideas. – 5 Paragraph Business Plan empowers all leaders. 

Mission:  Put a plan into action using 5 Paragraph Business Plan to break down and task out ideas from senior leadership. Use 5 Paragraph Business Plan to back brief senior leadership on how actions will take place. 


Senior leadership puts vision down on paper for subordinates to digest. 

Senior leaders task subordinates with the initiatives that need to be done in order of phase/priority. 

Tasked leaders construct a 5 Paragraph Business Plan based on the mission they’ve been tasked with, and which conforms to the vision of the greater overall organization.

Subordinate leaders complete the plan and back brief using the 5P format. 

All further initiatives are identified in the debriefing/after action reports, used by all leaders.
