Abstract:

With the services shifting toward the management aspect of running a peacetime force vice the leadership role, the services face a dilemma of sorts do we teach and stress management of systems or do we concentrate on producing leaders. This study seeks to discover what the difference is between leadership and management training as viewed both by business and the military. It studies contemporary leadership models and comparescontrasts two large businesses with the US Army and US Air Force. The study looks at the way modern business trains its leaders and at the way the services train their leaders in leadership and management. It suggests ways to improve and evaluate military training in leadership, management, and technical proficiency and concludes with several recommendations for senior army leaders to consider in order to improve leadershipmanagement systems in the services.
