    Title: A View from Inside the Surge: No Plan B

    Description:  This is an incredible example of how basic “humane crisis management” can turn the tide in a devastating situation.  Jim Crider takes us inside THE SURGE documentary and shows how the goal of meeting the mission may depend on a different approach.  He discusses how the US military utilized a “different way of thinking” to meet the mission in Iraq which allowed them to change the plan from a failure to a success.  Jim discusses the mission in Iraq and the strategy that turned the tables on the enemy. Primarily, how focusing on relationships and building alliances served the mission.
