Abstract:

The study investigates current thinking on the systems approach to management and its applicability to the project manager as an individual in the Naval laboratory, specifically the Naval Electronics Laboratory Center NELC in San Diego, California. It looks at the NELC organization, management roles, conflicts, interfaces, problems and some procedures which are used by project managers in planning and controlling. The authors conclude that laboratory project managers can be more effective if they have some management orientation or philosophy, and that the management philosophy that best fits the laboratory environment is the systems approach.
