This article argues that the field of organization studies may learn from closer study of decision-making and behaviors in military organizations. It describes some of the intellectual roots of organizational studies within a strategic, military context; discusses some recent characteristics of strategic competition that organization scholars may find fruitful to study; and view some of the key contemporary challenges in military organizations through the lens of strategic organization design, a framework the builds on, and integrates, several streams of research in organizational behavior that have implications for, and influence, how organizations make strategic decisions.
