Abstract:

A systems analysis of the Air Force OJT system was conducted. After many on-site visits and conferences and interviews with hundreds of supervisors and trainees, 17 problem areas were identified. The nature of each problem area was defined by the reaction of work-center superintendents and OJT administrators to 75 specific suggestions for methods of improving the OJT program in the Air Force. Additional information about problem areas was obtained by analyzing survey data collected by the Air Force OJT Advisory Service in their 1973 survey of 1,592 OJT supervisors and 1,580 trainees, and by analyzing a small amount of questionnaire data collected by the authors. Thirty tentative conclusions were drawn. Specific recommendations for program changes were made, including recommendations for field tests and surveys to validate those conclusions that require additional information prior to wide-scale implementation.
