The Education and Development of Strategic Planners in the Navy
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
This thesis examines the graduate level education and professional military education programs available to U.S. Navy officers who are designated as, or seek to become, Strategic Planners. The programs are reviewed and suggestions are given for interweaving education with billets to provide the career path necessary to expose naval officers to the environment in which the modern strategist must operate. The utilization of officers is also investigated through the results of a survey sent to 449 naval officers with both educational and experience-based Strategic Planning subspecialty codes. Their opinions on the preparation they received, plus their recommendations for improvement are provided.
