BATTLE WISE: Seeking Time-Information Superiority in Networked Warfare

By David C. Gompert, Irving Lachow, and Justin Perkins


This book is an inquiry into the possibility of improving the operational thinking and decisionmaking of U.S. military individuals, teams, and forces who fight for their nation. The unstoppable spread of information networking and know-how gives rise to the need for a new edge—one that utilizes but transcends networks—by developing people, teams, and decisionmaking methods that convert information into better choices and outcomes. We call this new edge battle-wisdom and form a view of the need for and nature of battle-wise people, forces, and decisionmaking.
