Abstract:

The problem stressed is to determine if management by objectives MBO is a feasible technique to be used in Army management, and if so, at what levels of command should it be applied, and through what process. Background information was gathered through an extensive library search on the subject of managing by objectives and in particular as it applied to the public sector. A telephone survey was conducted to determine where some military applications of MBO were being used. Personal and telephone interviews were conducted with personnel involved in MBO at various levels of military organizations. This paper suggests a process for implementation.
