Tacticians are usually people of principle, vs someone who is just self-centered. Many times a tactician will fall into the Trap of pragmatism. Or they will do what is easier or more convenient then what is right and therefore of holding their principles.
This is why Jesus was not a pragmatist, but was a tactician who had a goal and never fell for his selfish ambition but always followed his goal that had given to him by GOD THE FATHER.

  • Was to perfectly obey the father, therefore never sinning, which qualified him to have power over sin and death. 
  • This brought him to his ultimate goal of the Redemption of mankind and the cosmos.
  • Jesus was not a pragmatist because he never took the short cuts to redeem mankind. He did it through obedience to the Father and suffering on the cross.
A dictionary definition
A tactician is someone good at planning tactics: the specific means of accomplishing goals.
A strategy is an overall plan for accomplishing something. Tactics are the steps taken to carry out the strategy. If someone is skilled at coming up with tactics, they are a tactician. In a political campaign, a tactician helps with speeches and ads. In football, a tactician draws up plays. In war, a tactician figures out specific ways of carrying out the plans of the generals. A tactician knows how to get things done.
A pragmatist is someone who is pragmatic, that is to say, someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let emotion distract her. A pragmatist can also ignore her own ideals to get the job done, so in this way it can have a slightly negative meaning. The word is often used in reference to politicians to mean that they are either sensible or willing to cut corners for their cause.
