What is a Good Briefing Statement?

by | Mar 1, 2023

Here is an acronym you may not have come across before SMEAC.

S  =  Situation
M = Mission
E =  Execution
A =  Any questions
C =  Check understanding

This is a very simple yet effective catch-all briefing template, which can be refined or augmented as required. Try it and let me know your thoughts.

Provides the context for the task and answers the question of ‘why’.

The statement of the mission should align with all the comments about the definition of the aim and objectives.

This describes the plan to achieve the outcome.

Any questions:
Always allow time in your briefing for questions.

Check understanding:
Always ask a few pertinent questions of those involved to confirm that their understanding is the same as yours.
