Goverment Executive Magazine August 1996 Vol.28, No.8

Drug Warrior
Gen. Barry McCaffrey knows how to run a major military command. But managing the battlefield in the federal war on drugs will be a far more complex and daunting task.

Command Performance

Case Study: Downsizing Dilemma
When faced with eliminating jobs, how can managers find a balance between helping displaced workers with outplacement services and getting the agency's work done?

Selling the Services
