WHY HAVE WE WRONGLY ASSUMED THAT PLANNING is BEST LEFT TO THE BUSINESS LEADER? 

The world's greatest military forces have all operated since the 1800's under a structure invented by Napoleon called the 'continental staff system.' Napoleon understood that a commander is busy leading, so why would they have the time to thoroughly plan what they want to accomplish?

Today, military leaders depend on their staff to prepare their plans. An experienced officer supports the commander with guidance and detailed preparation. This position on the commander's staff is known as the S3.
