Abstract:

This thesis provides a short historical evolution of the Navys Human Resource Management HRM and the Armys Organizational Effectiveness OE programs, including a review of the pertinent training literature. It then presents a four-dimensional framework for examining and assessing initial Organizational Development training in the Navy and Army. Dimensions of this framework include selection of military consultants, training course objectives, training course content, and course capacity for self-evaluation and improvement. Application of the authors assessment framework revealed that both the Navy and the Army lack empirically-based consultant selection criteria. Additionally, the author recommends the addition of a practical, hands on student learning experience to the HRM Specialist curriculum.
