Mission Tactics

Used to describe the exercise of command authority by a leader, which places the relationship of command, control, and communications in proper perspective by emphasizing the predominance of command. The emphasis on command, rather than control, provides for initiative, the acceptance of risk, and the rapid seizure of opportunities on the battlefield. It is viewed as freedom of action for the leader to execute his mission in the way he sees the situation, rather than being told on how to do it. (PAM 3-071 S-2008)
