Leaders of different echelons use various frameworks for leading those under them in order that a mission is well planned, prepared, executed, and accessed properly.

The Troop Leading Procedures and Orders Process are similar in the respect they both highly emphasize the planning and preparing of a mission and they both require the continual assessing of the progress.

Since both frameworks emphasize on assessing and revising continually my group was able to adapt to the situations. This is what brought about the successful completion of the Lab and the knowledge for implementing these frameworks in other tasks and life
