Abstract:

This thesis focused upon the Deputy Commander for Resource Management DCR, a senior logistician at the wingbase level. The purpose of this research was to describe the current DCRs, and also explore the issue of stovepiping , a concern raised by Lt Gen Leo Marquez. An attempt was made to determine if a correlation exists between the level of success attained by the DCRs and their individual backgrounds in logistics. The results showed that 55 percent of the DCRs in the population had been stovepiped in their careers, 8 percent of the DCRs multi-disciplined background in logistics, and 36 percent has no background in logistics.
