Events, Meeting|

The fourth Annual Discipline Conference (ADC) for the Operations Planning, Operations Assessment, and Alternative Analysis (#OPOAAA) discipline took place at the Kromhout Barracks in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on April 17th and 18th, 2024. The NATO Command and Control Centre of Excellence serves as the Department Head (DH) for this discipline.

This year’s edition welcomed 28 officers, specialists, and managers from various entities, aligning the OPOAAA efforts to enhance the Alliance. This discipline is one of the numerous disciplines within the NATO Global Programming (GP) for Education & Training, Exercises, and Evaluation (ETEE), which oversees Education and Training (E&T) within NATO. Each discipline has its own specific focus to prevent duplication and inefficiency.

The conference concluded with the farewell of Major Guus Peters (NLD A), who served as the acting department head on behalf of the NATO C2COE. He will continue his military career in a different position within the Netherlands Armed Forces. His role and duties will be assumed by a staff officer to be announced by the NATO C2COE.

The NATO C2COE will publish a Discipline Alignment Plan (DAP) and, based on experiences and the ADC discussions, continue its role as the DH. With the challenge of “connecting the dots,” finding and orchestrating appropriate solutions for the present and the future, the NATO C2COE has an improved focus and scope on this topic
