As the book says right up front: "It is not more command and control that we are after. Instead, we seek to decrease the amount of command and control that we need." Think about that one for a while - does your company work this way?
Like its companion, MCDP 1, Warfighting, this is a guide for helping people to work together under conditions of stress and uncertainty. Sounds a lot like modern business to me.
If you're too old to join the Marine Corps, these books may be the next best bet. Read them, ponder them, and use them.
In this brief little book from the U. S. Marine Corps, we have the answers to how to adapt and take advantage of chaos. The concepts are simple enough in theory but challenging to put into practice over a large organization. Still, the efforts to do so are wiorth the reward of having an organization that is truly able to meet the challenges. To fully grasp the concepts, it is necessary to accept a paradigm shift in how we understand Command and Control so the book provides the theory behind that new paradigm. This book describes the importance of mission orders that convey intent rather than details filled with synchronized actions tied to an inflexible plan. It describes how such orders require trust between command and subordinates and the desirability to enable and encourage intiative at the lowest levels in the ranks. It stresses the difference between management and leadership with respect to people and stresses the importance of people and ideas over technology.Read more ›
