"This study examines the effectiveness of General Merrill A. McPeak.s leadership as chief of staff of the Air Force in relation to the major command, composite wing, and objective wing reorganizations.

The composite wing case examines a doctrinal shift away from the unitary wing structure, and the objective wing case explores the Air Force move to eliminate .stovepipe. organizations that reported off-base to an authority other than the installation commander.
