    Pentagon civil management model planned for Turkish Defense Ministry: Sources

    A civil management restructuring process modeled on the Pentagon is planned for the Turkish Defense Ministry after the failed coup attempt of July 15, sources from the ministry told daily Hürriyet.

    Inspired by the civil management at the Pentagon, the new management team at the ministry will be composed of 60 percent civil and 40 percent military personnel, according to sources.

    “The goal in restructuring the ministry is 60 percent civil and 40 percent soldiers in management. That percentage can be half and half in the beginning but the ultimate goal is 60 to 40 percent. That rate is 70 percent civil and 30 percent soldiers at the Pentagon,” sources said.

    Interesting to see others adopting our model given all of the criticism of it here in the US over its alleged inefficiency. This however seems to be more political rather than something related increasing the military efficiency of the Turkish Military, maybe it does aswell but it is a step towards bringing the military under the control of the civilian government not the other way around.
