Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to update the core competencies and associated skills, knowledge, and abilities (SKAs) required by Navy health care executives. Three waves of the Delphi technique were employed. In Wave I, senior Navy health care executives identified the five most important competencies and their associated SKAs believed to be required for Navy health care executives over the next decade. An expert panel of senior health care executives reviewed and sorted the identified competencies from Wave I into six domain categories and gave each domain an appropriate title. From the expert analysis, the researcher developed a questionnaire for use in Delphi waves II and III. In Wave II, senior executives from Wave I rated the competencies from each domain. During Wave III, junior Navy health care executives completed the same questionnaire given to the senior executives. Results indicated that competencies surrounding interpersonal skills and understanding the environment emerged as most critical for Navy health care executives into the next decade. In addition, statistically significant differences in opinions emerged between groups and among 20 of the 100 individual SKAs rated indicating that senior and junior health care executives have very real differences in opinion regarding required executive skills.
