Complexity Strategy: Furthering Military Practice, Research & Education


One of the greatest challenges to strategy is how to handle complexity. The contemporary security context in which militaries engage is complex, just as militaries themselves constitute, collaborate and compete with complex actors and instruments. How to handle these different aspects of complexity should be at the forefront of the strategic agenda. Today complexity is widely acknowledged but poorly understood. There is hardly a strategic document that does not explicitly point to complexities in the security arena, although few make a concerted effort to explain let alone address such challenges. Complexity can and should be understood. Patterns, risks and scenarios can be identified, explained and to some extent predicted and planned for. Strategy must take this into account. That is the foundation for complexity strategy and the starting point for this project.
