Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine if the situational variables organizational level, sex, and race have measurable effects on Air Force supervisors perceptions of organizational effectiveness as measured by three criteria--job satisfaction, perceived productivity, and organizational climate. Using data provided by the Leadership Management and Development Center, the research sample consisted of Air Force supervisors of both sexes, who were either black or white. Three-way analyses of variance were performed, one for each effectiveness criterion, to test the hypotheses of no main effects and no interaction effects. The results indicated that organizational level, sex, and race, individually, do have significant effects on perceptions of organizational effectiveness. Due to the limitation imposed by small minority frequency Distributions, determination of the significance of itneraction effects was considered inconclusive, and opinion must be reserved until a more robust and representative sample has been examined.
