The overall research method is qualitative. First, based on the analysis and interpretation of literature and research background some steps presented to prioritize strategic options in strategic foresight. Then, with the help of Delphi technique, the validity of the list of provided steps was tested. The scientific and applied acceptance of all the steps and their general goodness of fit confirmed by the convergence of academic and military experts in Delphi's second phase. In the end, based on the presented steps, it had been suggested to commanders and strategist of the military to use this method to prioritize strategic options in the process of creating strategy for military units. The innovation of this research is to provide a way to select the ultimate strategy in strategic foresight, which, with a time-integrated approach, evaluates and prioritizes strategic options simultaneously in three short, medium, and long-term horizons. In this way, in addition to the "outcomes of each option" and "the probability of collecting those outcomes", "synchronization of options" and "outcomes time", are also intertwined in the prioritization of options.
