Abstract : The purpose of COF 20 is that the task force performs its assigned missions more effectively and quickly than the enemy and achieves the brigade commander's intent. The outcomes include: (1) The TE commander's decisions result in orders which are feasible, suitable, acceptable and rapid enough to cause the TE to gain and/or retain the initiative. (2) The TE staff gathers accurate information, makes it available to the TE commander, other TE decision makers and staff members in time to be of use in executing the mission. (3) The TE staffs' analysis of information results in sound assessments that match the actual situation; recommendations to the TE commander which are feasible, suitable, acceptable, and in time to assist his decision making process. (4) No breakdowns in the TEs' ability to maintain clear communications with higher, adjacent and subordinate head quarters. (5) The TE commander infuses his will and intent among his subordinates without losing the ability to respond to changing circumstances with the task force. (6) The TE consolidates and reorganizes during/after mission. (7) TE staff ensures that the TE commanders guidance and orders are executed.
