Abstract : This research examines the use of alternative workweeks to improve productive work at naval activities ashore. These activities have limited control over the number of personnel assigned by the Bureau Naval Personnel. Attempts to increase productivity must be achieved with personnel assigned. Therefore, potential increases in productivity and retention must be accomplished through innovative leadership. In order to increase productivity from personnel assigned, it is necessary to improve morale and command buy-in. This might be accomplished by changing how the Navy Standard Workweek (NSW) is executed. This research examines theoretical productivity increases under alternative workweeks using the established NSW as a benchmark, as set forth in OPNAVINST 1000.16K, Navy Total Force Manpower Policies and Procedures.
