Study Background: To understand what it takes to be an outstanding command (aka applies to Corporations, Companies, Organizations, etc.) the Leadership and Management Education and Training division of the United States Navy compared 21 operational units (12 superior and 9 average) from three warfare communities (air, surface, submarine) in the Atlantic and Pacific fleets. The Command Excellence research teams, made up of Navy and civilian consultants, spent four to five days observing daily operations in each command. They conducted individual and group interviews with the commanding officers (aka CEOs), executive officers, department heads, division officers, Chief Petty Officers, and junior enlisted. Wing and Squadron staffs for each command were also interviewed. In total, more than 750 individuals were interviewed.
