Strategic Guidance Statement
Issued by the FCO, regional or HQ leadership, it outlines strategic priorities, broad national objectives, and basic assumptions; describes the envisioned end-state; and establishes the means necessary to accomplish that end.
The mission statement addresses who will conduct the operation, what will be accomplished, and why the operation is being conducted.
Goal 5: Maintain a collaborative working relationship with the Rebuild Iowa Office (RIO) in order to enable an effective, forward-thinking recovery operation

Course of Action
A COA is any sequence of activities that an organization may follow that would accomplish a mission.
COA development provides options on how the mission might be accomplished.
Lines of Operation
A decision point is a specific key event, critical factor, or function that, when acted upon, contributes materially to achieving success.
In some cases, specific key events—such as attainment of longer-term housing—may be decision points.
Some decision points can be expected due to analysis of critical factors, but some may not be determined in advance.
A stakeholder is a person, community, agency, organization, sector, industry, or commodity that is either involved in or affected by a COA.
A participant is anyone involved in deliberate planning.
How is a participant different from a stakeholder?

Working in your table group, use the reverse (negative) brainstorming technique to develop COAs.
