This is the second video in our Troop Leading Procedures Video Series. In it we cover the M in METT-TC, Mission Analysis. Enjoy!
Some key points for this video are:
During mission analysis, we analyze higher mission and our mission. We analyze higher two up (i.e. if you are a platoon, you look at battalion) and one up (i.e. if you are a platoon, you look at company).
We look to see what adjacent units are doing, and whether or not we have attachments.
We look through tasks to subordinate units to see what it is our unit is tasked to do.
There are generally four outputs from out analysis in this section: Your Task Organization, an updated Operations Overlay, your Tentative Mission Statement, and an updated WARNORD.
