It brings a sense of teamwork and cohesion to everything we do—and even how we are perceived. Planning and Programming Officers develop and write Air Force, joint services and combined plans. Based on guidance from Air Force headquarters, major command or joint services procedures, they design plans that incorporate Air Force doctrine and war-fighting capability. They then analyze the impact of programming decisions on war-fighting capabilities and coordinate amendments to rapidly resolve issues.
