A definition of Strategy is that it is about the choices a nation makes given a particular strategic environment, and the trends shaping our future strategic environment point toward an era that some have labeled "persistent conflict". Given this premise The United States Army War College (USAWC), in support of the Army Staff and in cooperation with national security faculty and researchers at Harvard, MIT, and Tufts University conducted a series of workshops from 7-10 April 2008 entitled Strategic Vision Workshop: National Grand Strategy. The Workshop explored the various choices available to the United States involving the use of the elements of national power as depicted in the DIME model (Diplomatic, Informational, Military, and Economic).
