From the
Reviving the Journal
of
 Installation Management
 When I joined the InstallationManagement Command, I was impressedand surprised to learn that IMCOM hadbeen publishing a professional journal. I was impressed because establishing a jour-nal indicates a high level of organizationalmaturity and professional curiosity. I wassurprised to learn this publication hadbeen in production during the years I wasthe Senior Commander at a major instal-lation, yet I’d never seen a copy. This con-tradiction represents the current state of IMCOM. The command has become vitalto sustaining the Army Family, but it needsto more effectively communicate the great work it does.This is why we established the InstallationManagement Campaign Plan and it’s why  we’re emphasizing strategic communica-tion. IMCOM has supporters and detrac-tors like any new organization, but it hasbecome indispensable to the Army as thekeeper of the Army’s Home. Our Army needs us to do more in raising the installa-tion management community profile. This journal is one of many tools we will use. We’ve built on the good work that wentbefore to bring you an updated magazine with a fresher look, a regular quarterly production schedule, and a more strategicapproach to content and content manage-ment. Each quarterly issue will adhere toa theme related to the Campaign Plan, with about 10 articles that address someaspect of the theme. Content will comefrom the garrisons, the headquarters andthe regions, and from other stakeholders when appropriate. We’re going to ensureall our stakeholders get a copy of their ownto read and keep on their bookshelves, and we’ll publish an electronic copy on the Web site for easy reference. As the Senior Commander at Fort Hood,I would have welcomed this resource. I worked closely with the garrison com-mander and the region headquarters toprovide and constantly improve facilitiesand services for the Fort Hood communi-ty. As a customer and a partner, I regularly engaged the garrison commander and theRegion Director to set priorities that im-prove processes for everyone’s benefit. HadI been reading the Journal of InstallationManagement, I would have better under-stood IMCOM’s challenges and opportu-nities and could have contributed moreas a stakeholder. This exchange of ideas isimportant and productive in managing therelationship between service providers andcustomers. That is the relationship we’relooking for with our readers.The theme for this issue is Leadership and Workforce Development, based on Line of Effort (LOE) 3 in the Campaign Plan. I se-lected 10 garrison commanders to providean article each. Of the 10 articles, somegave a status report on where they stand with the Campaign Plan. One addressesthe changes inherent in a total refocusingof the installation’s missions. Yet anotherillustrates the price we pay in lost capabil-ity when we fail to teach Civilian leaders theleadership skills we teach military leaders.In addition to the 10 garrison articles, we added two articles contributed by the Army War College to address twoimportant aspects of installation leader-ship: one is on acculturating a new garri-son commander, and the other addressesleading the kinds of changes that BRACand Army Transformation have broughtto some installations.I think most of us can learn somethingfrom the articles in this issue of the Journal.Some of it might look obvious to you, buteveryone approaches the same commonleadership tasks a little differently—thatfact comes out in these articles. We can alllearn from each other. While you’re read-ing, give some thought to how you wouldgo about crafting an article and on whattopics you would prefer to write. We willcontinue to task the garrisons for articles,but I would hope we arrive at a time whenour leaders and subject matter experts feelmoved to contribute of their own volition. We’ll see where it goes. Like everything wedo, we try things and modify as we prog-ress to continuously improve.Enjoy this issue and let us know whatyou think. In reading through the articlesmyself, I remain impressed by the level of knowledge and the depth of insight thatexists across our community. If we getenough constructive feedback, we’ll startpublishing a letters section where we canhave a dialogue.Thanks to all who contributed to the first issueof the new Journal. I look forward to seeing therest of you published here in the near future.
