Abstract

Management research has long been the focus of researchers and academics who strive to identify and suggest qualities that enable the former along with management practitioners and public and private institutions to achieve maximum stakeholder return. The writer aimed to suggest common attributes of management that can be practiced and developed between the military and civilian environments. In pursuing this research, the author chose to conduct an in-depth analysis of a variety of competencies that are developed in the two environments and how they can be applied to the aforesaid frameworks. To achieve the latter, the researcher chose to employ the qualitative research method as it is linked mainly with the investigations of human relations and corporate and public management structures. By utilizing qualitative research techniques, the writer capitalized upon prior debates surrounding the focus of the study and current research data. A range of relationships were examined in connection with the management discipline such as academic background of the executives, previous experiences of the latter, their influence in new managerial positions, military history, the relationship between leadership and management and weaknesses and strengths of the military and civilian organizations. The complexities that were revealed were analyzed and weaknesses regarding research were identified and accounted for. Further research opportunities were flagged for supplementary investigation by combining additional frameworks of the management art and by employing comprehensive triangulation research methods.
