In fall 2001, the RAND Corporation conducted a survey of officers and enlisted personnel who had recently returned from a deployment to Prince Sultan Air Base (PSAB) or Eskan Village in Saudi Arabia.

The fact is that we still clearly have a need for good managers
—people who are able to effectively plan, organize, direct and control.

An ecosystem is a group of animals and plants living
in a specific region and interacting with one
another and with their physical environment.
Ecosystems include physical and chemical components,
such as soils, water, and nutrients that
support the organisms living there. These organisms
may range from large animals to microscopic
bacteria. Ecosystems also can be thought of
as the interactions among all organisms in a given
habitat; for instance, one species may serve as
food for another. People are part of the ecosystems
where they live and work.
The world has come a long way since Duke first started tumbling in early versions of
Netscape Navigator. Java has outgrown its humble origins as a cool way of providing
interactivity on Web pages and has found a new role as a major, server-side development
platform. The actual Java language has changed little in the intervening years, but an
enterprise-quality infrastructure has risen up around it.

appeared in Harvard Business Review in June 1990, entitled The Core Competency of the
Corporation, by Pralahad and Hamel. It defined core competencies as "the collective
learnings in the organization, especially how to coordinate diverse production skills and
integrate multiple streams of technologies." The thesis being that core competencies (i.e.,
harmonizing streams of technology) can become a way of competing via developing new
products built around/off of a firm's proven competencies.
