Summary

Summary

Like many large organizations, the Department of Defense (DoD) faces a serious challenge trying to balance core military, financial, and environmental goals. Over the last 15 years, DoD and other large, complex, global organizations have turned increasingly to proactive environmental management to balance such competing goals more successfully. Proactive approaches give organizations strategic flexibility but are difficult to implement. The authors first summarize how commercial firms have implemented proactive environmental management in weapon system design, logistics, base management, and environmental cleanup, then draw implications for DoD's environmental management efforts in these areas. The authors then propose an approach based on total quality management to define and monitor the details of this implementation effort.


Excerpts

Excerpts

The authors propose an approach to implementation based on total quality management, recommending that DOD use commercially developed TQM templates, which have been customized for application to sophisticated environmental management systems, to define and monitor the details of this implementation effort.
