Abstract:

There are numerous examples of corporate and public management case studies in use at various institutions of higher learning. Few military specific examples of published case studies are available from which to compare and contrast management principles currently used in the United States Navy to those employed in the corporate and public sectors. This thesis uses data from the recently completed withdrawal and closure of the United States Naval Complex at Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines, to develop a Navy example of a management case study for use at the graduate teaching level. The focus of the case is to illustrate the issues in the development and operation of a large scale control system that has limited life and purpose. Specifically, the case focuses on events occurring from late calendar year 1991 through the beginning of calendar year 1992 and demonstrates the evolution of management control by the Commander-in-Chief United States Pacific Fleet to implement strategies for the eventual closure of the Subic Bay Naval Complex.
