What is strategic science?

I think there are better ways to solve problems. I study science, I study strategy. I connect the dots and explain it as a strategic science.

An attempt to drive strategy down the knowledge funnel.  Essentially the process of taking an art, making it a craft, than a science, than an applied science that can engineer consistent deliberate results.

We have minds for a reason, why not be smarter about how we do things?

The splinter in my mind – where is the strategy body of knowledge collected and distilled to it’s core universal concepts? For years I have looked for a simple holistic approach to strategy as a whole. Never found it.  Please let me know if you have.  I can find hundreds of pieces, genre specific tools and techniques, but nobody has generalized strategy for universal application.  It’s the physicist in me looking for the strategy version of Halliday and Resnick.  Strategic science seeks to find the common fundamentals and techniques used in strategy, from Business to Games, Sports, War and Politics. There is a consistent science to how strategy works, and like any other science, you should be able to engineer results by applying the science.

StrategicScience.org is dedicated to pursing and promoting the concept of strategy as a science, seeing what we can accomplish with it, and what the limits are (and if we can set new limits).

Why?  Because it has driven me crazy for years.  I wake up in the middle of the night recognizing patterns of concepts that I have to write down.  There are better, more sophisticated ways of solving problems and getting things done.  This I my way of trying to crack the puzzle.

Hoping by sharing my pursuit of strategy, it can help out others as well.

Thanks for reading.  If you have any ideas, let me know.

    Hi – enjoyed the blog – wondered if you’d be interested in reviewing a copy of ‘The Strategy Book’ – if so, I’d be happy to arrange a review copy for you. Just let me know.

    Thanks for your work,
