Abstract:

The Air Force Commissary Service AFCOMS is responsible for the management of all commissary and troop issue functions through-out the USAF. AFCOMS generates 2.1 billion in annual sales at 137 activities that employ over 9,500 peoples. Significant management expertise is required to manage this vast Air Force Business activity. AFCOMS does not presently have a formal program of executive development and needs one to ensure that there are sufficient professionally educated, trained and experienced individuals available to assume the executive management positions in the organization as they become vacant in the years to come. This study explains the AFCOMS mission and organization in detail, discusses its accomplishments and present problems, and analyzes its present executive manning and future needs. The study concludes with a dissertation on the merits of executive development programs in general and finally outlines and executive development program for AFCOMS. Author
