This study of the U.S. Army Contracting Command-Kuwait (USACC-KU) used an organizational systems framework to analyze factors related to strategy structure, processes and results experienced at USACC-KU during 2006-2008. The researcher's experience at the command coupled with survey data from employees and mid and senior level managers was used to analyze the organization as a system. Conclusions and recommendations regarding the assessment include: 1) Key variables appeared to be incongruent, which may have contributed to documented organizational dysfunctions; 2) The command should initiate meaningful morale building events into the command's schedule and encourage use of existing morale, welfare, and recreation activities; and 3) Recommend the command establish clear and compelling short and long range goals, involve personnel and communicate goals throughout the command, and establish metrics to ensure and track implementation of needed changes. Looking at an organization as a system through a comprehensive analysis, provides leaders with a diagnostic tool to assess the health of the organization, identify weaknesses, and better align its direction with the needs of the organization.
