AbstractThis monograph discusses whether the U.S. Army has developed appropriate organizations for the conduct of tactical reconnaissance at the Corps, Division, Brigade, and Battalion/Task Force levels of command for the heavy forces in accordance with current doctrine. This monograph compares at each of the four levels of command under consideration, the parent unit mission profile, doctrinal mission requirements, and current reconnaissance organizations, to determine whether stated requirements are met. The monograph first provides the historical background to the development of reconnaissance organizations in the U.s. Army since World War II. Then current reconnaissance missions and organizations at each of the four levels of command under consideration are examined. Conclusions as to the ability of these organizations to fulfill doctrinal are then derived. Finally, recommended reconnaissance missions and organizations are presented. The monograph finds the largest problems at the division and brigade levels and recommends that the best solution for both lies in the restructuring of the divisional cavalry squadron. (jhd)

How Buckman's Value Stream Initiative Re-Visioned IT for ValueJanz, Brian; Meek, Tim; Nichols, Ernest; Oglesby, John (AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), 2016-09-08)This article describes how Buckman, a U.S.-based chemical manufacturer, redefined itself and its IT organization using "value" as the focal point for analysis. Buckman's Value Stream Initiative (VSI) used a micro-level, individual view of value as assessed by customers. VSI enabled Buckman's IT management team to discover the value being derived from IT activities and make necessary changes. Lessons learned from Buckman are provided for IT leaders interested in driving benefits in service delivery, IT efficiency and effectiveness, and overall value to the organization.Click here for podcast summary (mp3)Click here for free 2-page executive summary (pdf)Click here for free presentation slides (pptx)
Kenya - Community Driven Development : Challenges and OpportunitiesWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2013-08-27)The overall objective of this analytical work is to assess the possibilities for using a community driven development approach in Kenya, to increase formal linkages, downward accountability of service delivery mechanisms, and social inclusiveness in the poverty reduction effort. The report explores relevant policy, and institutional features which color the community driven development (CDD) experience in the country. In the attempt to summarize existing data, and experience on CDD, the focus remains on the various institutional approaches used by different programs. These include a wide spectrum from government and non-government, including a look at the enabling legal, and administrative environment for community mobilization, and civic engagement. Initially, the report provides a background, and introduction to the study, and in analyzing the CDD, aims to inform the Government's the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper process, and the Bank's Country Assistance Strategy. It then reviews major policies which had impacted the present socioeconomic circumstances, and attempts at CDD. This policy analysis mainly focuses on institutional issues, covering interactions between provincial administration, central line ministries, and local government, and service delivery. Recommendations suggest the instutionalisation of villages, empowerment and improvement of local authorities functioning, and, the design of a supportive development administration, options viewed not as mutually exclusive, but designed to provoke stakeholder discussions.
Analyzing Community Responses to HIV and AIDS : Operational Framework and TypologyWodon, Quentin; N'Jie, N'Della; Rodriguez-García, Rosalía; Bonnel, Réne; Olivier, Jill; Pascual, F. Brian (2012-03-19)This paper presents a framework for analyzing the community response to HIV and AIDS. On the basis of a review of the literature, six criteria are proposed for characterizing such community responses: (1) the types of organizations and structures implementing the response, (2) the types of activities or services implemented and the beneficiaries of these, (3) the actors involved in and driving community responses, (4) the contextual factors that influence community responses, (5) the extent of community involvement in the response, and (6) the extent to which community responses involve wider partnerships and collaboration.
