Hi ML, this post inspired me to ask a few questions about the opposite end of the spectrum: hiding strategy. I imagine that allowing adversaries to easily get ahold of your strategy documents probably isn’t a best practice; however, does preventing your opponents from knowing your strategy yield tangible results? I am assuming that an excellent strategy is one that the opponent cannot pre-empt. Is secrecy a necessity to making your strategy stronger in relation to the opponent’s? Or does the strategy change so much over the course of the engagement that it’s not worth the resources to actively hide given how much it will change?
