The ‘Operate ‘ process area is composed of a collection of business processes for the conduct of planning, preparing and executing command and control (C2) for military operations in all domains of operations and for all military functions. The sub-processes of the Operate or operations process are not discrete; they overlap and recur as circumstances demand. Planning starts an iteration of the operations process. Upon completion of the initial order, planning continues as leaders revise the plan based on changing circumstances. Preparing begins during planning and continues through execution. Execution puts a plan into action by applying military forces to seize, retain, and exploit the initiative to gain a position of relative advantage. Assessing is continuous and influences the other three activities. Domain and function specific sub-processes define specializations of the common business process.
