In this thesis, possible methods for improving the U.S. Marine Corps Combat Development System are introduced. The Combat Development System (CDS) is a system designed to produce integrated capabilities for the U.S. Marine Corps. A review of the CDS's doctrinal implementation, such as orders as directives, and actual implementation, through organizational visits and personal interviews, highlight several possible methods for improving the CDS. Recommendations for improving the CDS include commercial and government management techniques and performance measurement models. A knowledge management (KM) study of British Petroleum and a study of Microsoft are introduced as examples of how KM can improve CDS. Merging the two main information systems that support CDS is recommended to provide cost and effort savings within Marine Corps Systems Command and Marine Corps Combat Development Command.
