This report describes the work done to date on the first year of a three year project designed to upgrade the education of military officers in the field of strategic planning and management. The initial section of the report covers the genesis of the project, the thesis of the research, and the use of the terms "strategic management" and "strategic planning." The second section of the report summarizes some of the current conditions within DoD that make application of strategic management/planning difficult. The final section of the report outlines the reform efforts of the faculty of the Naval Postgraduate School to respond to the current conditions and to initiate curriculum change. Efforts to date have involved the overhaul of two capstone seminars and the writing of student reports, which will eventually be turned into case studies in strategic planning and strategic management. Planned actions over the next two years are also summarized.
