Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) 6-0 presents the Army's guidance on
command, control, and the mission command warfighting function.
This publication concisely describes how commanders, supported by
their staffs, combine the art of command and the science of control
to understand situations, make decisions, direct action, and
accomplish missions. (See figure 1, page iv, for a graphical
overview of the exercise of mission command.) The principal
audience for ADP 6-0 is all professionals within the Army.
Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task
force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable
joint or multinational doctrine on command and control of joint or
multinational forces. Trainers and educators throughout the Army
will also use this publication. Commanders, staffs, and
subordinates ensure their decisions and actions comply with
applicable U.S., international, and, in some cases, host-nation
laws and regulations. Commanders at all levels ensure their
Soldiers operate in accordance with the law of war and the rules of
engagement. (See Field Manual FM] 27-10.) To understand and apply
mission command doctrine, readers must understand how unified land
operations (the Army's operational concept, described in ADP 3-0,
Unified Land Operations) contributes to unified action. In
addition, readers must be familiar with the fundamentals of the
operations process, established in ADP 5-0, The Operations Process,
and the fundamentals of Army leadership. Army Doctrine Reference
Publication (ADRP) 6-0, also titled Mission Command, explains the
principles of mission command in more detail. Taken as a whole, the
doctrine in ADP 6-0, ADRP 6-0, and ADP 5-0 forms the foundation for
the tactics, techniques, and procedures for the exercise of mission
command. ADP 6-0 uses joint terms where applicable. Selected joint
and Army terms and definitions appear in both the glossary and the
text. Terms for which ADP 6-0 is the proponent publication (the
authority) are marked with an asterisk (*) in the glossary.
Definitions for which ADP 6-0 is the proponent publication are
boldfaced in the text. These terms and their definitions will be in
the next revision of FM 1-02. For other definitions shown in the
text, the term is italicized and the number of the proponent
publication follows the definition. ADP 6-0 applies to the Active
Army, Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States,
and United States Army Reserve unless otherwise stated.
