Tactics and strategy


Consider this military bit or wit, and put it in the context of a PMO dealing with tactics and strategy, as well as tactics and logistics on complicated and complex projects. Are you the professional or the amateur?

"There is an old—and misleading—bit of conventional military wisdom which holds that “amateurs study tactics, while professionals study logistics.”

The truth is that amateurs study only tactics or logistics, while professionals study both simultaneously.

The most brilliant tactics ever devised are pointless when the supplies needed to execute them do not exist, while all the supplies in the world are useless when a commanding officer has no idea how to effectively employ them."

Quote from "Field Marshal: The Life and Death of Erwin Rommel"
