Commentary

Putting together a fighting force has many options, for example creating an elite brigade or spreading the best men to create a wider capability. The way the troops and weapons are organized depends on the strategic intent and planned maneuvers.

In business as in war, a difficult question is where to put your best people. There is no magic formula for this but your choice can be critical.
