Our goal is to institutionalize the RM process so that all Soldiers and Army Civilians apply it-as a matter of course-in their planning, training and operations. To that end, commanders shall incorporate RM into their operational routines. This includes regular use of the process for crisis action and exercise planning, clear guidance in the commander’s intent on the level of acceptable risk, discussion of risk assessment and controls at mission briefs, and thorough after-action reports
