Tactical Horizon

One of three primary planning horizons.

A period of planning for future capital renewal projects, which typically extends five years from the current year. It therefore covers near term events. It corresponds with the tactical plan.

The tactical horizon is shorter than the strategic horizon (which can extend up 30 years into the future) and longer than the operational horizon (which usually covers only a single fiscal year or calendar year).

The tactical horizon will typically capture the renewal of short-life assets and medium-life assets.

The tactical horizon is nested within the strategic horizon and the operational horizon is nested within the tactical horizon.
