Current research

What if the military was a business? Military strategy normally deals with winning a campaign, but seldom deals with the organisation and costs of the military organisation itself. In a time of austerity that question is more relevant than ever. Taking my point of departure in American and British examples my research projects deals with what strategic studies can learn from business studies
