Complex Operational and Organizational Problems

Topic: Operations Related to OOTW

Dr. Dean S. Hartley III

Operations Other Than War (OOTW) are those operations short of war, but not garrison.  The nomenclature derives from a military perspective, although it includes activities by non-military agents.  (See the OSD PA&E project below for a more complete discussion.)  Lately, the topics are discussed in terms of the levers of national power - Diplomatic, Information, Military, Economic (DIME) - and the observed situation elements - Political, Military, Economic, Societal, Information, Infrastructure (PMESII) - or as Human, Social, Cultural Behavior (HSBC) models.
