Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone out there know what the 5 P's are and in order please?
  2. Planning and Preparation Prevent Poor Performance...... although I can get it up to 7 :D
  3. Thanks, but I meant the one's used as a guide for writing pen pictures, i.e performance etc
  4. The format we work to (only 4 Ps I know):

    Post - Background and summary of role fulfilled.

    Performance - How they did in the execution of this role.

    Position - In rank against peers within whatever level of unit.

    Potential - Have they reached the end of the line, or do they have potential to reach 2 ranks up.


  5. Post (3 Lines) - Brief description of the post and any particular responsibilities.

    Personality (4 Lines) - Pithy description of the individuals personality (good and Bad points) to enable a board to form an impression of the soldier.

    Performance (7 Lines) - Say how well the soldier has perfomed in post and draw out the individual's technical, soldierly, leadership and managerial skills.

    Potential (4 Lines) - Comment on future employment and potential for promotion. Include commissioning potential if appropriate.
