Using the Lotus Blossom technique, we can start by placing “Time Reduction” in the center of the 9 squares, and try and come up with some problem solving techniques to achieve that goal. Tasks can be delegated to individuals on the team by the Commander so that the time between notification and time on target is greatly reduced. This accomplishes a couple of things: It gets things off of the “plate” of the Commander leaving him time and energy to focus on more important things, and it is helping and teaching other guys on the team about responsibly.
