US Army Headquarters Transformation

Strategy and Performance Practice
 

Objective

MSI was contracted to identify the best approach for achieving a 25% reduction in cost by Headquarters Army (HQDA) and Major Commands as instructed by the Secretary of the Army in response to congressional budget cuts handed down earlier in 2013. 

MSI conducted analysis organizational and mission analysis to ferret out organizational alignment to mission and strategy as well as to identify redundancies in effort/staff as well as gaps. The end result being the identification of best approaches, MSI further analyzed previous Army attempts to reduce cost through process improvement and organizational redesign. The result was the recognition that numerous methodologies had been attempted at great expense, but these past attempts were insignificant and in some cases counter to improvement. The MSI team asserted that bold moves were required and that leadership had to be prepared to fight organizational inertia.
