In January last year, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared that the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization would henceforth be known as the Missile Defense Agency. More than just a name change and an elevation of bureaucratic status, Rumsfeld's reorganization made changes that altered the way the new agency would manage its programs and that signaled a radical departure from the way business is done in the rest of the Defense Department.
