context of the strategic approach

Understand the issues & master the processes

Understanding what is at stakes for a crisis then mastering the Decision-Making processes combining all available instruments of power constitute the fundamentals of a Crisis Management Capability for a state, a regional or international organization.

(For additional details on Strategic and Operational Approach see “Operational Art”).

BASE OF SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE OF CAPABILITIES

Getting such a capacity requires to educate and train a pool of officers gathering a broad base of skills. Together, these skills innervate strategic and operational headquarters to prepare, plan, conduct and evaluate joint operations.

At these levels of responsibility, it is a question of knowing perfectly the capacities of each component as well as operational functions, in order to combine them while being impregnated with the politico-strategic field of consciousness overarching any State action.

The specific savoir-faire is therefore distinctly different from that prevailing at the tactical level,.

foundation of skills & knowledge of capabilities

To acquire such a capacity requires the constitution of a pool of officers bringing together a broad base of skills. Together, these skills innervate strategic and theater (operational) headquarters to prepare, plan, conduct and evaluate joint operations.

At these levels of responsibility, it is a question of knowing perfectly the capacities of each component and the operational functions, in order to combine them while being impregnated with the field of politico-strategic consciousness to which any state action obeys.

The level of know-how required is therefore distinctly different from that prevailing at the tactical level.
