In June 1998, U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the National Partnership for Reinventing Government presented a team of Army logisticians and RAND analysts the Hammer Award in recognition of a great accomplishment: making Army logistics work better and cost less. This report documents that achievement. Started in 1995, the Army’s Velocity Management (VM) initiative sought to improve the responsiveness, reliability, and efficiency of the Army’s then outdated logistics systems. Since then the Army has dramatically streamlined its supply process, cutting order and ship times for repair

The Navy manages its officer corps with the primary goal of meeting the national security and military strategies. Within that broad goal, it also manages its officers to provide them with individual opportunities and a reasonable quality of life, in the most cost-effective way, within a framework of law, policy, and practice. The Navy has a number of personnel management tools that it can use to shape the officer corps to meet various goals. If the Navy wishes to alter its personnel management practices, it can do so. However, its ability to change some aspect of management depends on what de

During Operation Iraqi Freedom, coalition forces classified the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MeK), an Iranian dissident group dedicated to the violent overthrow of the Iranian government, as an enemy force.

In 1998, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) began work on developing a standard that would have required all workplaces to establish a safety and health program, which uses management tools that address general behaviors and procedures to reduce the risk of occupational injuries and illnesses. Although some states already had such programs in place, OSHA argued that worksites with such programs had lower rates of injury and illness and that a federal standard would extend this benefit to worksites without such programs. By 1999, however, OSHA had abandoned its rulemaking

What does an individual need to be considered an experienced fighter pilot? The current formal definition is based on how many flying hours a person has, but in practice, the question is more complex and sometimes subjective because an individual requires different kinds of experience for combat positions and staff positions.

For flying positions, they found that time in advanced simulators is now also considered to be an important component of experience. Upgrade lev
