These are some of the slides from Scott Snook's interactive presentation at the beginning of the Managing The Unexpected Workshop, February 28, 2005 in Jacksonville, Florida. Set in the broad context of the US Military's sweeping transformation, from the end of the Cold War through the current War in Iraq, this session calls for the death of the traditional "command and control" orientations and argues for a different way of leading - one based on what we've learned about how to influence complex, non-linear, chaotic systems.
