Abstract

This paper demonstrates the effectiveness of the Focused Management approach, which integrates the philosophies and techniques of Just in Time (JIT), the Theory of Constraints (TOC), the Complete Kit (CK) concept, and Global Performance Measures (GPM), as well as Total Quality Management (TQM), in improving the performance of military units. It shows how these mission-oriented units can implement Focused Management to improve their long-term as well as their short-term results. The paper presents the methodology and illustrates with a case study.
