Abstract:

This study presents a comparative analysis of how four groups of officers view organizational effectiveness. The four groups that were surveyed include Human Resource Management Specialists Navy, Organizational Effectiveness Management Consultants Army, surface warfare officers Navy, and combat arms officers Army. The instrument used to collect the data was a modification of the Navys Human Resource Management Survey Fleet. The modification to the survey required these officers to describe organizational states which they believed were reflective of an effective organization. The original Fleet survey merely asked officers to describe what their organizations looked like now, not how they believed they should look. Sixty of the original eighty-eight questions were modified from the Navys survey. An additional forty questions were added to these sixty questions in order to evaluate leadership styles. These forty questions were modified from Fleishmans leadership questionnaire. Comparative analyses were conducted among groups to determine if significant differences existed.
