Resumé

Er militær ledelse en kunst? Et håndværk? Eller en videnskab? Med afsæt i en analyse af begrebet militær ledelse viser artiklen, hvordan arbejdet med metaforer har en helt central organisatorisk funktion og kan udgøre et væsentligt redskab til udvikling af organisationer og professioner. Artiklen præsenterer dels en teoretisk udfoldelse af og refleksion over, hvad vi kan få blik for, hvis vi betragter metaforer som et perspektiv. Dels undersøger artiklen konkret, hvordan tre forskellige metaforiske forståelser af militær ledelse – som henholdsvis en kunst, et håndværk eller en videnskab – har afgørende betydning for, hvordan den militære organisation vurderer og udvikler sine militære ledere.
