SWJ: Small Businesses’ Role in Asymmetric Warfare

March 7, 2013

The Small Wars Journal has published my article on Small Businesses’ Role in Developing Superior Capabilities, Tactics, and Countermeasures for Asymmetric Warfare. Here is an excerpt.

Asymmetric warfare is defined by surprises. Our adversaries find unique ways to inflict damage. We develop countermeasures. They find a way around them. We become locked in an inconclusive cycle of action-reaction. Increasing the role of small business in the development of tactics, countermeasures and capabilities can help break this cycle and give us a decisive edge in asymmetric warfare. This can be implemented by expanding outreach to small business and actively including them early on in the process of capability gap analysis and requirements development.
