    Mar 25, 2010

    In 1994, after serving as an organizational consultant for General Gordon Sullivan, then U.S. Army Chief of Staff, Margaret Wheatley wrote an article about the U.S. Army becoming a learning organization.

For much of the previous decade, the low-level conflict with Iraq had demonstrated how difficult it is for the United States to synchronize force and diplomacy and to apply force in precise, measured doses. It raised questions about whether and when it was necessary or effective to use overwhelming military force-and how to convince the American public and Congress of the need to do this. And it demonstrated the persisting strengths and weaknesses of the American method for strategic decisionmaking, particularly the interplay between crisis and normal decisionmaking, and the role of the uniformed military in the process.
