This thesis discusses the managment strategy of the Coast Guard Reserve; it examines the formulation and implmentation of strateqy. A model to develop and implement strategy is proposed, which defines the role of the budget in this strategic management process. The recent strategy of the Coast Guard Reserve is analyzed using this model.. This analysis seems to indicate that the Coast Guard Reserve had no explicit strategy in the l980s; however, the Reserve did execute an implicit strategy as inferred from its actions. This implied strategy enioyed varying (deqrees of success depending on the criterion of evaluation. Where the criterion shows limited success, I recommend solutions to the various problems. A principle solution involves the Coast Guard Reserve expanding and formalizing the strategic process, including the use of the budget as a means to that end.
