What is a primer?

Primers can provide aggregated, contextual information to help educate the reader, identify shortfalls, and propose options to be researched, discussed, and demonstrated through organizational experimentation. Primers DO NOT tell personnel or organizations what to do or how to do them. Primers merely analyze problem sets in order to facilitate discussion amongst key decision makers so they can more easily pursue solutions. In many cases, just presenting the current situation from a different perspective is enough to generate discussion, development of courses of action, and informed decisions. Once solutions are found, they can also provide the requisite documentation that become the foundation for future doctrinal revisions.
