Describe the process and concept of framing the operational environment and how you envision facilitating this process as an operations sergeant major.

At the end of the Army Design Methodology (ADM) lessons, you must write a paper on two (2) focused areas listed below. The student (you) will select the topic of your choice. This assessment style aims to present focused areas within the doctrine and lesson material you research, discuss with your peers, and consider throughout the entire lesson series.
a. Focused-Area 1– Framing: Describe the process and concept of framing the operational environment and how you envision facilitating this process as an operations sergeant major. Provide at least one relevant example to support your response.
b. Focused-Area 2– Operational Approach: Describe the process and concept of developing an operational approach and how you envision facilitating this process as an operations sergeant major. Provide at least one relevant example to support your response.
Required Reading: ATP 5-0.1, Chapters 1, 2, 3 (Focused Area 1), and 5 (Focused Area 2).
Requirements:
You will write no less than 750—words to no greater than 1300 words (not including the cover and reference pages), thoroughly discussing two of the four above-focused areas. You must use the American Psychological Association (APA) seventh edition style. Must have at least one source per focus area.
Expectations

FOCUSED: Your brief should address all parts of the topic area without many random ideas which have little or nothing to do with the topic. Students often think that adding random facts or ideas will help improve their grades because they know them. The opposite is true – adding random, unrelated ideas or facts usually reduces points from your grade.

STRUCTURED: You know what you want to brief/write, but your ability to communicate that knowledge to your instructor depends on how well you structure your brief. Take the time to make a rough outline of what you want to brief/write and in what order you want to present it. Stream-of-consciousness writing (putting things on paper as you think of them) will result in a mediocre grade at best.

DOCUMENTED: Your brief must go beyond a simple statement of the act. The instructor is looking for the correct content, but more importantly, for your understanding of the content. So, always include relevant facts, figures, examples, and tests (the phosphate test showed a ph. of …), etc. With the writing assignment, how well you document your content will often make the difference between an A and B grade.

WELL PRESENTED: Students who do not use the accepted rules of English are often thought to be less competent or knowledgeable than those who do. If you have all of the elements of a well- prepared brief, but your use of language, sentence structure, or spelling make it difficult to read your slides or understand what you are trying to say, your grade will suffer. Make sure you use good sentence structure, grammar, and spelling.

What do you think typically causes a raid force to lose relative superiority?

• 1-2: Consider the relationships required between the DoD and other elements of the US government for Crisis Response and Limited Contingency Operations. As a potential planner/leader for MAGTF involvement in these operations, what challenges and pitfalls can you anticipate based on the nature of the relationships between the various US government elements? How can the pitfalls and challenges identified be mitigated? Do the same mitigations apply for relationship challenges with nongovernmental organizations? Justify your response.

• 2-1: With the availability of precision strike weapons, when and under what circumstances would an amphibious raid be more appropriate than a strike? Since amphibious raids are conducted so infrequently, why does a large portion of MEU pre-deployment training consist of the planning and execution of amphibious raids?
• 2-2: As discussed in the readings, Admiral McRaven states that relative superiority in a raid is challenging to achieve and maintain, and if lost, is difficult to regain. What do you think typically causes a raid force to lose relative superiority? In which of the five phases do you believe the raid force is most vulnerable to losing relative superiority? How can that concern be mitigated?
