Thinking Strategically
About America’s Future 

To be successful, any nation must have achievable objectives and sound strategic thinking.  It requires having a game plan for accomplishing goals through the use of available resources and delivery systems to influence things for the better. Given that uncertainty is our contemporary adversary at the national level, we will need a sound grand strategy to advance America’s vital national interests in the years ahead. This talk will outline the characteristics of an effective grand strategy and offer some visionary advice on leading America during these unprecedented times.
