|Publication Date:||24 May 2019|
Allied joint publication (AJP)-5 (A) Allied Joint Doctrine for the Planning of Operations is the keystone NATO doctrine for planning of Allied joint operations. It is subordinate, and refers, to AJP-01 Allied Joint Doctrine.
Although all operations are unique, their planning and conduct can be approached in the same manner. AJP-5 presents an overarching framework of the key planning principles, considerations and processes that are followed in planning. It describes how planning activities and processes are integrated and coordinated to support decision-making and producing plans, orders and directives for all types of operations. It focuses on the operational level, although it also has utility at the strategic and tactical levels.
