Relevance / Key Issues:
This is not endorsed doctrine, but rather a very useful practical overview of the operational level planning process used by UK and NATO forces, produced internally by JSCSC to assist students attending the Advanced and Higher Command and Staff Courses. It draws from Allied Joint Publication 5, ‘Allied joint doctrine for operational level planning’, but also draws on elements of Allied Command Operations Comprehensive Operations Planning Directive (COPD), UK Joint Operations Doctrine (JDP 01) and Allied Rapid Reaction Corps guidance.
