Tactics 101: 010. Graphics
In summary, the commander’s graphics have to “talk” to the subordinate leaders who are executing the mission. Well prepared graphics can be used with a mission statement to run an operation although an OPORD is preferred to add clarity. If you get your graphics right it will make up for loads of errors in other aspects of your planning and preparation.
Next month, we will focus on the use of language and making sure that what is said is understood. As always, please feel free to provide comments and questions on the forum.
