Date & Time

Christian Stenner

A dynamic environment demands agility & adaptability in order to achieve success. A form of “Mission Command”, a military philosophy which advocates centralized intent with decentralized execution, is a worthwhile organizational tactic for achieving success in situations with uncertainty. This session will present an overview of Mission Command and how it organically became integrated into cave rescue situations.  These rescues are perpetuated with communications and control difficulties for which this philosophy has proven useful, but they can also be of benefit to regular team operations. We will discuss the strategies to integrate Mission Command concepts into your team and the benefits to having that integration.
