During the term, you were exposed to joint functions applied in the Joint Planning Process (JPP) of command and control, intelligence, fires and information operations, movement and maneuver, and protection (the ELO’s).
Reflecting on what you have learned, how important are the joint functions in the Joint Planning Process (JPP)?
Please use at least one real-world example to support your response (personal experience is usually easier to write about).
Based on lessons taught in this term, do you believe that your understanding and knowledge of JIIM Operations has increased or remained the same? Please elaborate with specific examples.
It is hard to express how “you believe” without first person however, do not get first person crazy. Moderate, necessary use will be acceptable.
