Effects Based Planning

Effects Based Planning (EBP) is an operational planning process to conduct effects based operations within rapid decisive operations. EBP is results-based rather than attrition-based planning. EBP closely mirrors the current U.S. Joint Forces Command planning process, yet focuses upon the linkage of actions to effects to objectives. EBP changes the way one views the adversary/enemy, ourselves, and what is included and emphasized in the planning process. EBP uses a flexibly-structured battle rhythm that leverages a collaborative knowledge environment and capitalizes on the use of fewer formal joint boards. It employs virtual, near-simultaneous planning at all echelons of command.
