Planning Operations

Show Summary Details


Critical though the initial period is for an operation’s effectiveness, it is generally not until very late that planning for an international administration begins. Discusses the reasons—structural and political—for the absence of strategic planning, the difficulties that derive from inadequate human and other resources, the failure to employ local knowledge sufficiently in the planning phase, and the lessons that one can draw from the comparative strengths that military organizations possess for planning purposes.

Keywords: coordination; in-mission planning; local knowledge; local participation; organizational learning; planning
