Make decisions and develop controls. Make risk acceptance decisions by
balancing risk benefits against risk assessments and eliminate unnecessary
risks. Reduce the magnitude of mission-essential risks through the
application of controls. Controls range from hazard awareness to
development of detailed operational procedures. Involve the chain of
command, if necessary. Risks or controls jeopardize assigned mission
Implement controls. Integrate specific controls into estimates, plans, RS
annexes, SOPs, training performance standards, and rehearsals. Individual
soldier knowledge of controls is essential.
Supervise. Enforcing controls and standards is paramount for successful
risk management. Evaluate mission progress and changes to METT-TC and
adjust process as necessary. After mission completion, evaluate risk
decisions and controls for inclusion in AAR (see figure I-1).
