dc.description.abstractAfter the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the U.S. defense focus turned to fighting terrorism throughout the world. This paper discusses an approach for stability operations laying a foundation for development of defense processes from strategic through operational to tactical. Defense institutional building positions the Coalition mission and the assisted nation for success. The U. S’s ability to establish effective defense organizations in these regions is essential to a decreasing Department of Defense (DoD) budget. Self-sufficiency of defense ministries means less manpower by the Coalition Security Assistance Forces. The paper describes the benefits for using network organization structure, project management, performance metrics, integration planning, nation tailored process and operating systems, and interdisciplinary workforce with transformational leadership. This positions success through managing and leveraging the interdependencies of activities (work) creating exponential performance (S-curve model). A systems approach to leverages concepts of network theory and complexity science strengthened through centralized planning but optimized through de-centralized execution. A case study on Bosnia and Herzegovina presents S-curve (growth curve) results.en_US
