Strategic Management in Security and Defence

The lecture presents the main governance functions and processes in defence and a concept for strategic defence management, i.e. the balancing of goals and ambitions, strategy, capabilities and planning risk in a changing force development environment. On this conceptual basis, the lecture presents a capability taxonomy, recommendations for improvement of organisational processes and the organisational structure of the MOD administration. It outlines opportunities for applying the strategic management concept to the management in the national security sector.
