Abstract : This is a study of strategy implementation rather than strategy formulation. This paper will describe factors leading to strategic changes within the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) since its inception in 1991. It will discuss the context in which this implementation took place. The paper will compare the implementation to Tony Eccles' model for quickly implementing strategic change, as presented in his book, Succeeding with Change: Implementing Action-driven Strategies. The comparison provides a means of analysis which supports conclusions on the efficiency of the implementation and recommendations for improving the implementation of future strategic changes.
