Abstract : This paper investigates the applicability of time spans of discretion and managerial strata to the military organization. Commanding officers at three levels of command were interviewed to establish the longest time span over which they gave total discretion to a subordinate commander. These commanders were from the U.S. Army and Coast Guard and occupied the positions of brigade, battalion, and company command (in the Army), or equivalent operational command levels (in the Coast Guard).
