In a later work, Ramanadham (1993:2) further depicts privatization as representing marketization of enterprise operations. He sees privatization as having both structural and content angles. The former has three aspects of change in focus- ownership, organizational and operational changes. To achieve privatization of public enterprises, structural change would involve changes in either or all of the three elements. Operationally, privatization would border on rationalization of government controls and restructuring of public enterprises.
A prime example would be the “offset strategy” technologies that enabled the United States and its allies to achieve overwhelming victory over Saddam Hussein’s then-vaunted military in the First Gulf War , but then became bogged down against lightly armed insurgents during the occupation of Iraq. Drawing insight from how revolutions such as the offset strategy reached critical mass, how actors exploited them, and how other actors countered and eventually conventionalized them could provide the conceptual flexibility and hybrid strategy necessary to confront the presently unforeseeable challenges that lie ahead in cyberspace.
