2016 marked the 70th Anniversary of the Marshall Plan. Marshall’s exemplary strategic leadership, especially in visioning and managing change during a key global transition, provides a yardstick to measure parallel efforts in contemporary and future contexts.
Marshall, a 1901 graduate of VMI was one of the most distinguished American leaders of the 20th Century. Marshall’s forethought and strategic vision for this plan provide an outstanding example of highly effective strategic leadership.
Overall, the conference tied together the influence of strategic leadership and its interrelationship with economic, political, military conflict, and stability during the period from 1947-to the present. The Marshall Plan received some special emphasis as a way to assess these concepts. Finally, we examined the changing roles/competencies needed to exercise strategic leadership through 2040.
