About The Author

Strategic sense is a concept fundamental to the theory and practice of strategy. Above all else, this sense should direct focus upon the consequences that are the purpose of strategy. The familiar idea of strategic effect is all about consequences. This is why we adopt strategy. If strategic sense is lacking, as was the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, strategically beneficial results should not be expected, or deserved! These are quite familiar ideas and logic, but Western governments have proved that they do not really understand them.
