The purpose of this project was to develop a roadmap or plan for systematically targeting research efforts at the most critical issues involving the Navy civilian workforce. The roadmap includes a model for prioritizing research projects and for managing research efforts through time. Five tasks were involved in this process 1 establishing the goals and objectives of the Navy Civilian Personnel Program 2 Selecting study participants from diverse groups knowledgeable about civilian personnel issues 3 conducting 40 open- ended interviews to determine a set of research needs perceived as most important to meeting Navy objectives 4 constructing of convergence charts which organized potential research areas into logical sequence of research activities leading toward the attainment of Navy objectives 5 conducting a targeted review of the literature to identify existing knowledge pertinent to each research area. Five research arrays were developed dealing with manpower requirements, recruitment, retention, productivity and Equal Employment Opportunity objectives for Navy civilian personnel programs. Each research array is broken down into sequential phases each phase is segmented into specific research areas. For each research area, key research issues are described and existing knowledge is summarized.
