General Jajko quoted on strategic surprise in Proceedings Magazine

In its October issue, the US Naval Institute’s Proceedings Magazine quoted longtime IWP professor, the late Brigadier General Walter Jajko, USAF.

In the article, entitled “Caught off Guard,” the authors discuss “strategic surprise” and the importance of going beyond classic strategic/operational planning in order not to be caught off guard.  The article drew from a piece by General Jajko on this topic, noting that: “Historically surprise is perspective-driven.  Meaning we can develop biases, sensitivities, or even blind spots over time from culture, experience, time, weakness, and our needs.’”
