Abstract:

A study was performed on the applicability of Task Oriented Team Development TOTD, a team development programmed workshop training model, for Navy use. All Navy commands are made up of teams of individuals working interdependently for common organizational goals. TOTD is a set of programmed training materials designed to enable work teams at any level of the organization improve their ability to work together. Navy and Coast Guard Units were given TOTD in its present form. Time-one and time-two measurement instruments were used with control groups. TOTD was found to be theoretically sound with current team development methodologies, however, it does not lend itself directly to Navy usage in its present form. The results of the study indicate that TOTD needs major modifications for Navy usage. The advantages of its programmed, modular nature, plus the minimum need of consultant or facilitator time make it worth Navy procurement with design changes incorporated. Suggestions for changes are listed in the appendixes of the thesis. Author
