The German military high command were professional and new about military strategies. The problem was that Hitler all too often interjected himself too closely in everyday battle plans. Although Hitler, generally speaking, was better that Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt concerning actual field battles, he was not a true military professional. This hampered the generals war efforts.
