winner; Design a Grand Strategy that everyone from the boardroom to the front line can share; and, Shape tomorrow...before
it shapes you.”
According to the book description
of CEO and Leader's Handbook: Introducing the Prometheus Process Strategic Planning Methodology,
“The CEO and Leader's Handbook provides a roadmap for organization leaders as they consider embarking on the Prometheus
Process, positioning it within their organizations, and developing and executing Prometheus Process Grand Strategies.”
According to the book
description of The Guide To Strategic Planning and Execution, “This guide outlines the essential
steps necessary to develop and execute a Prometheus Process Grand Strategy. This is a practical guide that focuses both on
the Process and on the organization using the process. Although the guide is generally written at the organizational
level of Grand Strategy most of the steps have equal applicability at sub-organizational levels.”
According to the book description of
The Air Campaign : Planning for Combat, “Since its original publication The Air Campaign:
Planning for Combat has been translated into more than a half dozen languages and is in use at military colleges throughout
the world. This book would later serve as the basis for the planning of much of the Gulf War air campaign. Generals Schwarzkopf
and Powell credited Col. Warden with creating the air campaign that defeated Iraq in the Gulf War. This new edition includes
a new epilogue where Col. Warden has refined and extended many of the ideas presented in the original book. The most significant
of these refinements is the development of the theory of the enemy as system-which flows from the center of gravity concepts
developed in the first edition.
