Abstract:

The new structure also meant that TAC units were now organized as they should be in the event of war. Self-sufficient squadrons are more readily deployable than are unyielding, centralized and highly specialized structures. The team orientation brought healthy competition, pride in facilities and aircraft, and true ownership of the product. TACs change in organization structure was shown to increase effectiveness without sacrificing the traditional concerns for people. Indeed, the structure increased satisfaction and pride as well as performance. And it did so without additional people, without improved airplanes, with fewer parts, and with a less experienced workforce. Of course not all structural changes are as dramatic in their effect not all are as wonderfully suited to the mission, technology, environment, and the leaders style and philosophy.
