Across Army, there is a wide range of trades, specialties and career pathways, and for many it can be a long time between opportunities to practice and enhance our tactical skills. For those not actively involved in combat roles, often the only opportunity to intensively practice all-corps tactical skills are career courses, and it can often be around five years between those courses. Understandably, there is a lot of skill fade that can occur if you don’t practice these skills or create chances to refresh your knowledge.
This video, produced by ALPC, provides a comprehensive explanation and demonstration of a Concept of Operations or ‘CONOPS’ brief. Whilst you might remember the rough composition of a CONOPS brief, watching this video will no doubt enhance the quality of your next brief delivery and refresh you on a few pointers you might have forgotten since the last career course you attended.
