Developing Realistic Tactical Objectives

Time wedge for decision making
"Leaders can optimize their decision space by using time efficiently. Seeking advance information in new situations or utilzing standard operating procedures for routine tasks are examples of techniques that make good use of available time."
Much of the work in the wildland fire service is technical. In demonstrating technical proficiency, fire leaders adhere to professional standard operating procedures, following established best practices.

Competent leaders develop plans to accomplish given objectives and communicate plans throughout the chain of command. Leaders exercise good judgment to ensure that the plan matches the objectives, employing people, equipment, and time wisely. (Leading in the Wildland Fire Service, pp. 25-26.)

Take a moment to present the "Developing Realistic Tactical Objectives" module from the 2014 Wildland Fire Annual Fireline Safety Refresher to your team.
