Creating a Military that is Audacious by Alan Roan, Cervus Website
I am reflagging this article by Alan Roan as it continues to be one of the strongest statements of the appropriate use of Intelligent Disobedience in the military.

Recently I was doing an innovation presentation for the Army and came across the idea of Intelligent Disobedience by a guy called Ira Chaleff. Ira talks about Intelligent Disobedience maintaining a balance within in a military system with rules and authorities while maintaining responsibility for the actions we take.
