There has been little empirical investigation into the process of communicating intent. After a brief review of what Army doctrine and other literature have to say about intent, this article will present the sobering findings of one study that investigated the communication of intent in four active-duty combat arms battalions. Next, the article will propose a method to help commanders improve their ability to communicate intent to their subordinates. Finally, the article will argue that the process of communicating intent is subordinate to another process known as imparting presence.
