Abstract:

Supervision is a large part of managing the SAC Minuteman ICBM maintenance production effort by providing important factors which lead to job satisfaction and motivation in subordinates. The people who manage, supervise, and perform missile maintenance are uniquely qualified to identify problems in the missile maintenance work environment. A qualitative survey shows that micromanagement, failing to provide challenging and meaningful work, and high work pressure are the three most prevalent problems in missile maintenance supervision. Other problems identified include low officer competence, lack of positive feedback, and NCO supervisory style. Author
