The Pacific Step-up – the role of JMAP and Operational Art
The Joint Military Appreciation Process (JMAP) is not able to achieve the ADF objectives in Pacific Step-up. As formal military planning processes, the JMAP is designed to draw out necessary considerations for the practical conduct of war.
When considering how a particular skill set might be applied, practice, process and experience are essential components of the discussion. In all roles in the ADF, technical mastery of specialist skills is achieved over months or even years of learning and practicing to be the best at a particular thing – shooting rifles, changing engines, flying aircraft, the list goes on.
