What the military can teach us about organization

    Thanks for your article.  As a 9 year veteran of the US Army as a physician/radiologist, I have taken away a few lessons from the military to my current civilian practice.

    One thing that wasn’t mentioned in your article is the sense of mission in the military.  In the military, Mission is critical, and it is the driving force of what we did.  As simple as “Take out that machinegun nest” to “provide state of the art health care to active duty, retirees, and veterans”, the mission is, was, and will be everything.  The mission brings together people of varying backgrounds and unite them together to achieve that purpose.

    Thanks so much for the feedback – I think you raise a very interesting point. Focus/mission is something we could all use a lot more of in the civilian world. How many people go through their daily lives without a bigger sense of their mission and then wonder why they don’t get anywhere…
