In an attempt to mimic and codify the success of the staff response during Operation Damayan and other B2C2WG
achievements, USPACOM AADC and CCMD officers explored ways to improve missile defense integration with the goal of a collaborative problem-solving process.
Early on, there were discussions about the battle rhythm and synchronization of the B2C2WG.
The B2C2WG framework became the definitive methodology for bringing all of the staffs together within the transition LOE working group.
Accomplishing the objectives and key tasks assigned required a group of tasks and systems united by a common purpose to accomplish the mission at hand and further supported the relevance of the warfighting function and the B2C2WG concepts.
This can be best accomplished by using the warfighting function doctrine, coupled with B2C2WG, as the most proficient method for managing integration.
Warfighting function doctrine, internalized and executed in a measured approach using B2C2WG methodology and coupled with the battle rhythm, is key to managing and controlling the integration of the various staff elements.
Willard, where the B2C2WG leads presented the commander their processes in detail.
Build internal B2C2WG battle rhythms, identify inputs and outputs, and then consolidate.
B2C2WGs were challenged to think about and organize their information and processes using the six fundamentals of command and control (C2), as shown in Figure 1:
These events were necessary for opening the lines of communication between B2C2WGs and to building an understanding of where we needed to be as an organization for accreditation and beyond.
Reviewed Army and joint sustainment doctrine to understand Title 10 responsibilities and the purpose and functions of combined-joint B2C2WGs.
Used a systems approach to sustainment based on the core B2C2WGs to effect sustainment at the operational level and support the commander's intent and operational priorities.
