A survey of research was presented on group behavior oriented to problems of aircrew proficiency. A common semantic problem was clarified which involves the distinction between terms descriptive of behavior and those descriptive of group functioning. This was illustrated with reference to the terms leadership and morale. The survey was organized in terms of a frame of reference within which top management levels might consider application of principles of group behavior to increase group effectiveness. Approaches to utilization considered were the structural approach, group dynamics, and the group as a man-machine system.
