Commander’s Intent

Commander’s Intent

Sitting for breakfast with Richard – my then VP of Sales at Tungle – he got to talking about Commander’s Intent. This resonated with me.

Instead of mapping out a way to win the battle, commander’s intent aims at describing what is the outcome of a successful mission. This allows troops in the field to figure things out by themselves if the communication link to HQ is cut.

I like and try to use this approach daily. Don’t map things out. Describe what success is. A smart team will figure out the way.
