New Troop Leading Procedures Video Series

New Troop Leading Procedures Video Series

We are launching a new informal video series going in depth through the various parts of the Army Troop Leading Procedures (the TLPs). We are starting off with a simple TLPs overview, but we will be working our way through everything that happens during mission preparation and planning. 

Some key points for this first video:

There are 8 steps in the Troop Leading Procedures:

1) Receive the Mission

2) Issue the WARNORD

3) Make a Tentative Plan

4) Initiate Movement

5) Reconnaissance

6) Complete the Plan

7) Issue the OPORD

8) Supervise and Refine


For Make a Tentative Plan, we use two processes, METT-TC Analysis, and Course of Action Development.
