George C. Marshall
George C. Marshall served as the U.S. Army’s chief of staff from 1939 through 1945. Marshall possessed the experience, commitment, assertiveness, and intelligence necessary to meet the challenges of reforming and reenergizing the U.S. military. By emphasizing simplicity, flexibility, and decentralization, Marshall’s institutional leadership delivered undeniable effectiveness and efficiency. Leaders of large institutions face daunting challenges. Even when their organizations are remarkably efficient, the sheer size gives rise to managerial complexities that can produce bureaucratic inertia, infighting, and a loss of vision and vitality. Marshall was more than up for the challenge.
