This study traces the development of management policy within the Department of Defense (DoD) from the 1947 National Security Act to present. It presents the recommendations of the major studies and the provisions of the major legislative initiatives of this period, which affected DoD management policy. The effects of this evolving management policy upon various major, functional, management problems are then assessed. Finally, this study summarizes the progress made in the development of management policy by four major DoD organizations: the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the individual military departments, and the offices of the Commanders in Chief (CINCS) of the unified and specified command structure.
