MetadataShow full item record
This project describes the emerging approach of Complexity Management, translates it for use in the Department of Defense (DoD), and applies its principles to DoDb2ss financial functions. Complexity Management is a new business approach introduced by The George Group Consulting company. The basic principle behind this approach is the identification and manipulation of complexity to improve efficiencies and reduce cost in an organization. The ultimate goals for this project were to: b5s Analyze the Complexity Management approach, as presented by The George Group. b5s Evaluate the feasibility of applying the approach in DoD, in particular to its financial functions. b5s Determine if this new business approach would be useful in DoD. Most people would agree that DoD is an extremely complex organization due to its size, mission, and nature. As such, Complexity Management should be an imperative approach in its operations and a fundamental part of its culture. This project provides an introduction to Complexity Management and a discussion of the benefits DoD could achieve with this new business approach.
