JORDAN, JAVIER. An explicative model of the processes of change in military organizations: the response of the United States after 9/11 as a case study. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.1, pp.203-226. ISSN 0718-090X.

This paper advances a theoretical model to explain the processes of change in military organizations. It begins by setting out the main theories that have been advanced in order to explain the origin of these processes. It then applies the integrative theoretical model to a case study of particular relevance: the innovation processes of US special operations forces in the fight against Al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks.

Keywords : strategic studies; military innovation; United States of America; special operations forces.
