STRATEGY: FROM THE WAR ROOM TO
THE BOARD ROOM
Sir Lawrence Freedman, Professor of War Studies, and Vice-Principal, King’s College London
What do modern military and corporate strategy have in common with Achilles, Sun Tzu, and primates? The answer is fluidity, flexibility, and pure unpredictability. Every day we make decisions that are built on our theory of what will give us the outcome we want. Sir Lawrence Freedman proposes that throughout history strategy has very rarely gone as planned, and that constant evaluation is necessary to achieve success—even today. Join The Chicago Council for a centuries-spanning discussion explaining how the world’s greatest minds navigate toward success.
For interested parties. Sir Lawrence Freedman has quite a few talks posted on YouTube too. Worth checking out.

“even today”: what a wonderful coded insult.
In connection with this topic, it is worth reading Tom Rick’s book The Generals, which I am rereading today. He makes the point that American generals imitated business executives and “managed” wars like Vietnam.
