Abstract:

Challenge is the current catchword, representing a mood pervading every segment of society questioning the established and the entrenched. It is especially pertinent to this discussion, since the concept of Integrated Logistics Support ILS is itself a strong challenge to some existing organizational structures and relationships. The concept expressed in The Peter Principle...that people rise to their level of incompetence and stay there...is also evident in organizational behavior. Organizations sets of people rapidly reach their level of incompetence unless a revitalizing force can be sustained, such as a different way of doing business. ILS is a different way of doing business. The report deals with the concept of integrated logistics support and its impact on organizational relationships. Author
