The U.S. and Canadian Army Strategies: Failures in Understanding

Excerpt

The U.S. Army War College provides an excellent environment for selected military officers and government civilians to reflect and use their career experience to explore a wide range of strategic issues. To assure that the research developed by Army War College students is available to the Army and Department of Defense leaders, the Strategic Studies Institute publishes selected papers in its Carlisle Papers in Security Strategy Series.

Colonel Stephen Brent Appleton, author of this Carlisle Paper and member of the Class of 2003, examines the formal strategies of the U.S. and Canadian Armies within the context of present organizational thinking used by Corporate North America. 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.
