The British Military decision making process has been developed to equip commanders to make the most critical of decisions, often under extreme time pressure. The complex and vast array of information needed in these situations is delivered by the Military Decision Brief. As a tool the Brief is designed to feed a complex matrix of time-critical technical information to decision makers in order for them to make the right decision.
For the last two years Royal Navy Information Systems Specialist Scott Maxwell has developed Military Decision Briefs for Ministers of State and Senior Military Officials in Whitehall as part of the UK Nuclear Firing Chain. In this lecture he looks at how Decision Briefs can be applied to the modern IS Operational and Business Decision Making Process.
