Abstract : Australian Army Officers in the ranks of Lieutenant Colonel and Major completed questionnaires about familiarity with management interventions and select management techniques. Responses were compared with perceptions of effectiveness, background and organizational factors. Data were analysed using a linear structural model (LISREL). Main results were a positive relationship between a set of 11 management interventions and perceived effectiveness and a stronger correlation between familiarity with management interventions and a select list of management techniques. In addition, a moderate relationship was found between job satisfaction and perceived effectiveness. Results are discussed in the context of implementation of a proposed model of effectiveness improvement. Keywords: Management; Organizational effectiveness; Australian Army; Military organizations.
