o Course of Action (COA) Development: Use the mission statement, commander’s intent, and planning guidance to develop multiple COAs. Examine each prospective COA for validity by ensuring adequacy, feasibility, acceptability, distinguishability, and completeness with respect to the current and anticipated situation, the mission, and the commander’s intent.

o Course of Action Analysis (War-gaming): Course of action analysis involves a detailed assessment of each COA as it pertains to the enemy and the operational environment.

o Course of Action Comparison and Decision: All retained friendly COAs are evaluated against established criteria and against each other, ultimately leading to a staff recommendation and the commander’s decision.

o Plans Order Development: The staff uses the commander’s COA decision, mission statement, commander’s intent, and guidance to develop plans and/or orders that direct subordinate actions. Plans and orders serve as the principal means by which the commander expresses his decision, intent, and guidance.

o Transition: Transition is the orderly handover of a plan or order to those tasked with execution of the operation. It provides staffs with the situational awareness and rationale for key decisions necessary to ensure that there is a coherent transition from planning to execution. The process, however, does not end here. The process is continuous. Staffs maintain running estimates that allow for plans and orders refinement."
