America's Reactive Foreign Policy: How U.S. Organizational Behavior and Culture Advantages China
We are pleased to announce the publication of the Andrew W. Marshall Paper, “America’s Reactive Foreign Policy: How U.S. Organizational Behavior and Culture Advantages China,” by Elliot M. Seckler and Travis Zahnow. Elliot and Travis were the grand prize winners of our paper prize on the Role of Organizational Behavior in Competition, which asked people to explore what are, or what might be in the future, cases of great strengths or weaknesses of organizational behavior in developing or implementing strategy.
Does the United States understand the competition in which it is engaged? Using China as an example, the authors of “America’s Reactive Foreign Policy” make a critical contribution to understanding how America’s organizational and cultural behavior might negatively impact the long-term competitions facing the United States. In the authors’ words, “If no one addresses the questions raised by this paper, U.S. decision makers may continue with a reactive foreign policy, leaving the United States vulnerable to being shaped by its adversaries in disadvantageous ways.”
