Abstract The SAS-081 Specialist Team on the Analytic Implications of the NATO Defence Planning Process(NDPP) was formed to the review of current best practices in operations analysis support to national defence planning. The aim was to support the identification of common approaches with relevance to the NDPP. This both provided participants with insight and understanding of contemporary approaches and issues within national and NATO defence planning, and allowed the identification of emerging best practice that is being fed into evolving NATO analytic processes. The Specialist Team considered five key themes of immediate relevance to the evolution of analytic support to the NDPP, specifically: Use of scenario-based analysis and definition of the scenario space; Methodologies for identification and definition of required capabilities, including gaps and redundancies; Approaches to capability balancing and risk assessment; Prioritisation of capability shortfalls or gaps; Introduction of novel concepts / solutions. National approaches within each of these areas were collated and compared, and general conclusions agreed that formed the basis for a set on recommendations on analytic implications for consideration by the NDPP decision makers.
