Numbers, equipment). The causes of these upsets form the basis for much of military education. A contemporary student of warfare knows that these upsets were not upsets at all but the result of a failure to recognize that competitive advantage is not necessarily equivalent to force advantage. A competitive advantage derives from a synthesis of a critical mass of relative advantages in several arenas: information, knowledge, understanding, decisionmaking (command and control), which are addressed in this book and other arenas including morale and leadership which have been treated extensively elsewhere.

The nature of this residual uncertainly is, as yet, unclear and its implications are not fully understood. Nevertheless, there is an historic opportunity to reconsider how best to deal with the fog and friction that will persist, and this is likely to have profound implications for military operations and organizations. 38 Understanding Information Age Warfare Impact of Fog and Friction Figure 19 illustrates the relationship between the amount of fog and friction and the level of synchronization that is likely to be achieved in military operations, which is directly related to effectiveness.

Departure from these norms will be difficult and will require a high degree of proof that the new way is not only better, but is also robust. Recent advances in technology offer an opportunity to reduce fog and friction.
