I have just uploaded a new webpage ‘No Plan Survives Contact with the Enemy‘.
A pithy statement I first came into contact with during service with the British Army. It has roots that can be viewed from 2,500 years ago (with a bit of imagination).
Presented as an insight article rather as an in-depth piece, it primes the reader to consider how planning for something (in this case a military operation) and realising it in the real world context may not necessarily align.
It also mentions history and learning from it, rather than just repeating our mistakes.
