In ‘Western Strategy’s Two Logics: Diverging Interpretations’, Lukas Milevski of Leiden University argues that whereas classical strategic theory encompasses two different logics – instrumentality and adversariality – and two different modes – decision-making and performance – in modern strategy these modes have been on diverging paths, with varying interpretations – game theory; operational art; and the ends, ways, means model – privileging one logic above the other. He makes the case for strategic studies returning to a balanced interpretation of strategy.Footnote8
