Abstract:

The general topic of defining organization effectiveness is addressed. While no succinct definition is provided, a construct of organizational effectiveness is recognized. Existing theory, research, and practice surrounding the construct has been searched and current measurement techniques have been cataloged along with summaries of various theories and models. Alternative methodological approaches and manifest characteristics of organizations in terms of effectiveness are considered. A compilation of independent, dependent, and intervening variables is presented. Suggestions are offered for future research in the Navy setting in the area of organizational effectiveness.
