Abstract:

Extensive work has been done on the application of goal programming models to manpower goals planning for large organizations. The purpose of this paper is to structure the extensions from the planning process to the operations and control aspects of the management cycle. Emphasis is on the accountability necessary to make this type of system an effective management control system. In order to develop this extension, this paper briefly explains the Navys system and progress to date. Then theoretical constructs of goals, planning, and accountability are discussed along with the general issues of management control system design as they apply to manpower planning. The issues are illustrated by means of numerical studies in the areas of organization-wide impact studies, EEO planning and accountability, and local installations models for borrowing and loaning personnel among cost centers.
