Not Your Average Operator, Ep: 015 - How do we plan for a mission?

What’s the tasking? Where do you start? What needs to happen? Who needs to be involved? What happens if things don’t go as planned? These are just a few of the questions that may race through your mind when a mission, an operation, or a job is assigned. What is it like to plan and execute a mission as a military operator or a pilot? How do you have transparency through every level of the unit, company, or team?

Listen in this week as Raf, Melon, and Mike share some of the basics with their own experiences in real world mission planning to breakdown some positive frameworks that you can possibly employ in your business career, sporting team, or own military unit.

Some of the wave tops covered:

  • What is the intent/end state?
  • Timelines
  • Blue Force Picture (Who is involved?)
  • Capabilities
  • Courses of Action
  • Phases of execution
  • Contingencies
  • Transparency
