Abstract
The second in a series on military strategic-level learning in DND/CF, this paper establishes a framework for strategic-level lessons learned by developing an analytical hierarchy for organizational analysis. Grounded in the seminal work on military effectiveness by Allan Millett and Williamson Murray, the paper articulates overarching and subordinate questions to guide strategic-level learning that focus both on military strategy and the overlap between military strategy and government policy, to assist in guiding assessment of effectiveness in force development, force generation and force employment. Pursued via research grounded in a common understanding of strategy, executed at the appropriate analytical levels, and driven by “a relentless empiricism”, these questions should serve to guide strategic-level learning, innovation and adaptation, and demonstrate how strategic-level lessons identification and analysis can and should inform strategic planning in DND/CF.
