MCS offers two workshops to develop working proficiency for those who have not had previous training in intent-based strategic planning or to reinforce existing skills for those with previous training. These are available in three presentation formats to best suit your organization’s needs.

Intent-Based Planning 1A (IBP-1A)

1 Day – focused on analyzing the incident environment, developing common operating picture, identifying and prioritizing values at risk and creating and articulating leader’s intent and objectives for the incident.

This program trains participants in a set of core principles, frameworks, tools and processes that promote clear and concise leader’s intent as the foundation for aligned and adaptable action on the incident. During the training, participants are presented with incident scenarios.  They work in teams to conduct an analysis of both the tactical and strategic situation and build a common operating picture. They develop prioritized values at risk, then work to develop and effectively communicate incident level intent using   objectives that align and inform the development of tactical intent for responders. When developing objectives, a process is used to ensure objectives meet the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-lined) criteria.  Attendees who have implemented the principles of this program have experienced improvement in their capability to construct an effective IAP, their ability to build and maintain situation awareness of an incident, and to generate more flexible and resilient action in the field. The outcome is a more effective and efficient response with lower risk to responders.

This program leverages doctrine in the command and staff aspects of incident management and includes content from the DHS CA-010-PREV Incident Leadership and CA-057-RESP Intent into Action: Advanced Leadership for the Command and General Staff programs.

IPB-1A Objectives

  • Apply critical thinking to analyze the incident environment
  • Build an accurate common operating picture within a staff
  • Identify and develop incident priorities and prioritized values at risk
  • Formulate clear and concise leader’s intent for the incident
  • Develop incident objectives that meet the SMART criteria
  • Effectively communicate leader’s intent in both verbal and written form to incident resources and stakeholders

Intent-Based Planning 1B (IBP-1B)

1 Day – focused on creating strategies and contingencies to accomplish incident objectives, designing the appropriate incident organization, developing intent-based tactical assignments and determining the acceptable risk of each assignment.

This program trains participants in a set of core principles, frameworks, tools and processes that promote clear and concise leader’s intent as the foundation for aligned and adaptable action on the incident. During the training, participants are presented with incident scenarios that will include a set of fully developed incident objectives.  Participants work in teams to create strategies for each incident objective, with one or two contingencies and trigger points for each.

In this workshop, participants design the appropriate organization for the incident, then go through a tactical planning process to formulate leader’s intent (task, purpose, end state) for each tactical assignment and implement a risk management process to determine acceptable risk for each tactical assignment. Teams then prepare tactical assignment sheets that fully communicate the intent and risk guidance to enable tactical risk management throughout the operational period by the resources involved.

Attendees who have implemented the principles of this program have experienced improvement in their capability to construct an effective IAP, their ability to build and maintain situation awareness of an incident, and to generate more flexible and resilient action in the field. The outcome is a more effective and efficient response with lower risk to responders.

This workshop leverages doctrine in the command and staff aspects of incident management and includes content from the DHS CA-010-PREV Incident Leadership and CA-057-RESP Intent into Action: Advanced Leadership for the Command and General Staff programs.

IPB-1B Objectives

  • Create viable incident strategies for each objective
  • Develop contingencies and trigger points
  • Design an appropriate incident organization
  • Develop task, purpose and end state for each tactical work assignment
  • Conduct a risk assessment and determine acceptable risk for each assignment
  • Effectively communicate leader’s intent and associated risk in both verbal and written form to incident resources and stakeholders

Intent-Based Planning Combination 2AB (IBP-2AB)

2 Days – Combines the previous two programs into one contiguous training experience, with Day 1 focused on analyzing the incident environment, developing common operating picture, identifying and prioritizing values at risk and creating and articulating leader’s intent and objectives for the incident.

Day 2 is focused on creating strategies and contingencies to accomplish incident objectives, designing the appropriate incident organization, developing intent-based tactical assignments and determining the acceptable risk of each assignment.
