Decision & Execution

By The Cove May 15, 2019


This video, produced by ALPC, provides an explanation of 'Decision & Execution' (D&E) - the final step in the five step Military Appreciation Process (MAP). In addition, it discusses the four activities associated with D&E:

  1. Compare Courses of Action (COAs)
  2. Select the COA
  3. Develop and issue the plan
  4. Execute the plan

Watch the video to refresh your knowledge on D&E, and take a look at our other videos in this series to look at each of the steps in more detail.
