Abstract : The transition from tactical expert to senior leader involves widening one's scope and becoming comfortable at the strategic level. Strategic vision is one of the competencies required of the leader functioning at that level. This report develops a list of questions by which one can evaluate the senior leader's strategic vision and then applies the list to a study of the strategic vision of Admiral Arleigh Burke, United States Navy. The final determination of the evaluation of Burke's actions as Chief of Naval Operations revealed that he possessed strategic vision.
