Planning is vital in Tactical Execution. SOAR planning principles have been tried and tested in the most difficult environments by both Business and Hostage Rescue Teams worldwide.
SOAR principles: Situation, Objective, Actions, Resources
Situation – The leader will develop the SOAR Plan in consultation with subject matter experts. Team members will be selected based on their capability and commitment, before the plan and the importance of the mission are explained.
Objective – Create a supportive team culture, role clarity and alignment to deliver and achieve the task within the time frame.
Actions – Create and sustain a coordinated approach for action, communication and ownership to achieve your goals.
Resources/Coordination – Ensure teams have the equipment, clear lines of communication and support to deliver the results.
Achieving Rapid Results
Achieving Rapid Results involves forming multi skilled teams, each with a clear goal aligned to the mission. Teams have ownership and clarity of their roles, areas of responsibility, and contingency plans. They will maintain effective communication between themselves, other teams and the project leader.
Implementing a thorough review process before, during and after rapid results projects enables continuous improvement, reward and recognition.
