Philosophy Of Command

Centuries of battlefield-tested agility, leanliness, and maneuverability. How agile can you be?

It is essential that our philosophy of command support the way we fight work.

First and foremost, in order to generate the tempo of operations we desire and to best cope with the [[uncertainty]], disorder, and fluidity of combat work, command and control must be decentralized.

Adapted from United States Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication 1, Warfighting.

Wonderful paradox, “decentralized command and control”.
