MDMP is a process, not a series of products. Create the time and space to build shared understanding amongst the staff through collaboration and discourse.
MDMP is about efficiency. You can only efficiently use the process after numerous reps in a training environment. Teach, train, review, repeat!
As an institution, we usually don’t finish Course of Action Development until after Course of Action Analysis. The output of good COA DEV is one or more COAs that pass screening criteria (feasible, acceptable, suitable, distinguishable, and most importantly, COMPLETE). In order to have a complete COA, it should probably be accompanied by a nearly complete synchronization matrix.
Your plan is bad, and failing from the minute you think of it. Good staffs set conditions for subordinate organizations to adapt and recognize winning attributes as they emerge.
The MDMP is a tool to create shared understanding. If the process isn’t doing that, alter it! The MDMP, as a doctrinal framework, is a guide to enable action.
