Abstract : This paper documents a workshop (20 to 23 September 1983) to identify behavioral science initiatives that would further enhance the current productivity research and development (R&D) program of the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory (AFHRL). The workshop began with a one-day session (confined to AFHRL personnel and selected Air Force Productivity Principals) in which Air Force productivity concerns were identified and discussed. On the second day, consultants made presentations on diagnosing and resolving productivity problems, creating climates for productivity, and implementing productivity programs. In addition, persons with productivity responsibilities in the Navy and Army and in other Air Force agencies made presentations on their programs. On the third day, the AFHRL presented its program of productivity research, including productivity measurement; feedback, goal setting, and incentive systems; and performance relevant situational constraints. The fourth day was devoted to group discussions, to identify, evaluate, and prioritize productivity R&D initiatives for the AFHRL. Keywords: Efficiency measurement. (Author)
