Authored by COL Stephen Brent Appleton.
The author examines the formal strategies of the U.S. and Canadian Armies within the context of present organizational thinking. He argues that both armies' inclination to internalize business concepts and strategies has left them in a precarious position with regard to strategy formulation and direction--one which could jeopardize the relevancy of their land forces.
