The article presents information on preparing U.S. Navy group commander's brief. The commander's brief is an essential element of operations, but it can take an inordinate amount of time to prepare and distribute. Improvements are needed in how data is collected, updated, prepared, and disseminated. The Navy's Human Performance Center, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command Detachment, was asked to take a look at ways to reduce the time staffs spend to prepare and deliver commanders' briefs.
