Abstract:

This study provides evidence of the feasibility of the organizational relocation concept and examines the associated first-effort planning guidance. Data gathered through contact with managerial personnel provided evidence of industrial and governmental acceptance of the concept and a new look at arguments for and against organizational relocation. Real-world first stage summary planning experience resulted in a better understanding of planning requirements by uncovering a number of problem areas. A desk-top analysis conducted against a field-experience backdrop also addressed planning procedures to further define guidance requirements. The study concludes that organizational relocation is feasible, but that additional study is needed to further develop planning guidance before the concept is considered for adoption as a national policy.
