Abstract:

The investigation focuses on the B-52 flying organizations of the Strategic Air Command in an attempt to demonstrate how organizational behavior affects internal resource allocation efficiency in a public-sector organization. Existing organization theory is used to develop a set of predictive hypotheses on how resource allocation decisions are made at the wing level. Selected hypotheses on sources of inefficiency and on how and why resources are allocated differently among bomb wings are empirically tested using data obtained in field visits to wings. Resulting analyses are used to identify methods for improving decision behavior. See also R-1435-PR.
