The report summarizes findings obtained in the first two years of a study of the implications of possible values changes in society for Navy manpower and management practices. Multivariate analyses of data collected from Navymen in a representative sample of units and from a civilian national cross- section suggest that, while there is no perceptible generation gap on work and leadership style preferences, there is an educated-related generation gap on receptivity to autocratic versus democratic management styles. Functional characteristics of the Navy as an organization are summarized. Values and attitudes toward military service, by both Navymen and civilians, are similarly analyzed, and possible action or policy steps are suggested.
