Quotes: Organizing

Organizing 21 "…I had laid out a list of over a hundred topics on which I wanted studies made and papers prepared." McNamara’s In Retrospect

Organizing 24 "…define a clear objective for whatever organization I was associated with, develop a plan to achieve that objective, and systematically monitor progress against the plan." McNamara’s In Retrospect

Organizing 328 "The goal is clear; how to get there is not." McNamara’s In Retrospect.

Comment: McNamara's methods of organizing were ideal. His results, including the Vietnam War, were failures. If you read his book, you will learn why he failed.
