As they say, amateurs talk tactics, dilettantes talk strategy, professionals talk logistics.

I'd say professionals talk strategy, tactics, and logistics prioritizing their conversation according to circumstance(with perhaps a decided emphasis on logistics). Educated amateurs talk strategy, tactics, and logistics with less quality but sometimes have something worthwhile to say and shouldn't always be underestimated. Just plain amateurs talk propaganda and should be tolerated indulgently as long as they are not doing any real harm.

And sergeants don't manage any of it. When this stuff is your primary concern, it's strategy. Again, as a rule of thumb.

A company is really the largest unit where you can expect to know everyone well. So, when you are worried about feeding your army, rather than feeding your buddies... that's sort of what I'm saying.
