Abstract:

With the collapse of the Soviet threat, the Army is finding itself in a period of significant change changes in funding, size, focus and missions. To adapt to this change, the Army needs to be more innovative. This thesis examines the subject of innovative change. It analyzes a case of successful innovative change in the 101st Airborne Divisions support structure. Prior to and during Operation Desert Shield, the Division adopted the LABFOB support concept that contributed significantly to the Divisions success in Operation Desert Storm. The analysis of this case shows how innovative change is brought about in an Army organization.
