The NGC Innovation Tactical Planning Handbook utilizes NATO’s new tactical planning doctrine, Allied Planning Publication (APP) 28 – Tactical Planning for Land Forces.
The Handbook provides a common approach to planning operations at the tactical level. It describes the tactical planning process - a process used by commanders and staffs to analyse a mission, develop, analyse, and compare courses of action, decide on the optimum course of action, and produce a plan and order for execution.
It has been designed and written for utilizations of the Corps level and below. This handbook will be used by the Operations Planning Group (OPG) members in order to (IOT) run a collaborative planning process with same understanding at higher and subordinate Formations/ Units level.
NGC has adopted APP-28, but is also blending the process and techniques with hard earned lessons of various Corps planning best practices. These practices are clearly highlighted (blue or yellow boxes) in the handbook.
Like all doctrine, this booklet must be viewed as a guide as opposed to a process that must be slavishly followed.
There is sometimes a tendency for planning staff to get too caught up processes, it is imperative that planning staff remain focused on the goal: the timely provision of a plan and orders that enable the defeat of the enemy
