Abstract:

The report summarizes theoretical assumptions of management by objectives it reviews literature on use of MBO in private and public sectors and it uses empirical data collected by survey of MBO applications at the Dahlgren Laboratory of the Naval Surface Weapons Center as a means of identifying strengths and weaknesses of this approach. Empirical data are used for extrapolation of methods which further research may prove can set more precise milestones empirical data are also used to construct a model organization for doing MBO in a Navy Research and Development Lab.
