CAMP BLANDING, FLA--Capt. Thomas Woods, fire direction officer for the New York Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 258th Field Artillery Regiment, plots a point on a map prior to briefing with the battalion commander March 9 here. The battalion's staff officers were learning "MDMP" -- the Military Decision-Making Process -- which is shorthand for an organization and planning system meant to help leaders develop their operations plans efficiently.
"MDMP is where the science of leading meets the art of leading," said Maj. Peter Mehling, the 1/258's executive officer. "It's the means by which you take a higher-headquarters mission and break it down into clear, understandable guidance for your subordinate units."
