Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of strategic vision formulation in general and in the U.S. Army, to suggest some areas in which the Army excels, and to recommend improvements in the Army processes which contribute to vision creation. In order to examine the process of formulating strategic vision, there is discussion of vision and of the visionary leader. This is because there are conflicting views about what vision is and is not and there is no established description of either the attributes of the visionary leader or the degree to which a leader personally must be visionary in order to create a strategic vision for an institution. The U.S. Army is one of those optimistic institutions in which it is widely believed that processes can be implaced to compensate for variations in the personal capacities of its leaders. This works well in many areas of leaderss responsibilities. It is needed also in vision creation.
