There is a growing recognition that perhaps the most critical determination of organizational success is the presence of effective leaders. There is also a growing awareness that the most difficult responsibility of the manager is the effective utilization of human resources. This study addresses the application of Douglas McGregors Theory X and Theory Y as styles of managing human resources. Both styles are criticized for adequacy in managing human resources in a program management environment. To adapt to this complex and dynamic environment a management style that is equally dynamic is required. Theory Z is introduced as an alternative style of management its basis is the ability of a manager to analyze the situation at hand and act accordingly. This study is intended to stimulate the interest of the manager in considering behavioral science techniques for his managerial style.
