Abstract [en]

Military conflicts are always preceded by diplomatic relations. The military strategic command exists to implement the political will, through military capabilities.

Decision-making takes place continuously in all levels and are relative interacting.

The purpose of this paper is to find out the significance of the military-political and military-strategic decision making in a conflict and how it can affect the objectives on the overall mission. Resources are scarce and need to be projected in the right place to achieve cost-effective results.

By reviewing Operation Allied Force in Kosovo, 1999, the diplomatic and military strategic decision-making processes and their impacts on the conflict are examined. John Boyd's theories of system paralysis through physical, moral and psychological impact through an effective OODA loop are the basis for the analysis.

The study concludes that linked processes are critical to achieve the set objectives. Time itself is not always decisive, but the process is relatively linked to the opponent's actions or reactions. Decision-making has also internally relative dependence within levels of command. The importance of introvert analysis of owns capability coupled to an extrovert analysis of the opponents’ situation is important in the continuous flow of decisions.
