In 1989, the Marine Corps attempted to adopt a new philosophy on warfighting named maneuver warfare.1 As with any disruptive innovation that requires a massive change in an organization’s cultural framework, it is going to become a long-term effort by its very nature. Presently, the Marine Corps is in the sustaining innovation stage of maneuver warfare where it continues the process of institutionalizing the disruptive innovation throughout all levels of command. It is apparent, however, that with its performance in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, the Marine Corps is responding positively to maneuver warfare in terms of doctrinal refinements, acquisition programs, and force structure modifications. Also, the evidence suggests the development of maneuver warfare is following the pattern of a successful disruptive innovation.
