Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to generate a collection of systems management cases that would help graduate students and others learn the nuances of managing complexity. The cases will help ensure the systems management case database is up-to-date, and reflects current technology, theory, and management thought. The research was based on a case writing methodology espoused by Leender and Erskine in their book entitled Case Research The Case Writing Process. Three comprehensive new cases were created the Vanguard Strategic Planning Process, which addresses issues concerning strategic planning in the Air Force The Analytic Hierarchy Process AHP and how it can be applied and Ground-Launched Cruise Missile GLCM Requirements, which describes how and why the GLCM system was acquired and how system requirements problems were addressed.
