ABSTRACT
The article describes the process of targeting meetings or operations synchronization. The targeting process is a system that provides focus as the mission evolves over time, but where the base order mission does not change. The operations synchronization meeting yields several important products including fragmentary orders consisting of numerous tasks associated with the D3A framework. In the updated military decision making process, commanders provide several duties and responsibilities.
