Policy and doctrine is about:
•Saying how to achieve an aim.
•Ensuring that everyone is working the same way towards the same goal.
•Controlling efforts to maximise benefit.
Without policy and doctrine:
•Uncoordinated systems and practices develop.
•The overall aim gets lost in local practices satisfying only local needs.
•Cohesion and efficiency are lost.
•Military utility is diminished.
•In-depth understanding of military documentary hierarchies.
•Respected practitioners with recent experience.
•Recent experience in the provision of policy and doctrinal documents.
