Abstract : The Navy principally uses the matrix organization for its Program Offices. This approach to Program Management requires strong support from the Navy's various functional organizations. This dependency has given rise to a group of people in the functional organizations that are called coordinators or integrators. This job is unique in that there is considerable responsibility assigned to these persons and they must meet these responsibilities through the use of personnel not under their cognizance. This problem gives rise to the need for these coordinators to possess qualities of leadership rather than simply those of management. This report addresses these leadership qualities, ways they can be obtained, and methods for their application.
