Theoretical and Operational Definitions of Strategy

  • Patrick C. Coaty


This chapter is organized: first, to define strategy as a theory, then categorize the elements of strategy including; the state, rationality, power, and the pseudo-environment. Next, the chapter investigates how the elements of strategy work by explaining John Boyd’s Observe, Orient, Decision, and Action (OODA) Loop. Finally, this chapter discusses the role of intelligence inside strategy as both a theoretical and practical concept.
