Abstract:

This thesis presents a look into the organizational behavior aspects of Navy field level comptrollership and presents an organizational analysis model designed to assist the new comptroller in transitioning into the new job. A brief history of comptrollership in the Navy is presented followed by a description of the model. Basically, the model states the optimal structural characteristics of the organization such as span of control or centralization can be determined from a study of the organizations technological and environmental characteristics that optimal leadership styles can be derived from an examination of individual characteristics of the leader, the followers and the situation and that appropriate decision making methods are associated with different environments of decision making. The overall operating environment is considered to have both direct and indirect effects on all other variables in the model. Data obtained from a survey of actual Navy field comptrollers verified the correctness of the model with noted reservations and indicated a substantial need for this type of research. Author
