The investigation had as its major goal an expansion and clarification of information from earlier reports focusing upon the Navy as a functioning organization. Three areas of interest formed the bases of this study. The first was differences in policies and practices across organizational levels within the Navy, and comparability of these factors with appropriately matched levels from civilian organizations. The second area concerned the relative influences of organizational level and age upon the reported differences within the Navy. The third area of interest was with relationships among four major factors within the Navy and the comparability with similar relationships within civilian business and industrial organizations.
