Abstract:

There seems to be a lack of publications that specifically focus on different techniques, things to do, and things to be sensitive to that will enable the individual to learn the new job as soon as possible. The Air Force has published a number of how to do it books, but each deals with a specific jog, e.g., How to Be a Commander, How to Be a Safety Officer, etc. With the number of job changes that occur each year in the Air Force coupled with the relatively short period of time on station 18 to 36 months before the next change, it is important to the individual, the organization, and the Air Force that the person understand his or her job as quickly as possible. That person could be headed for his or her first assignment or a cross-training assignment or a high-visibility job in which time management is paramount, predecessor overlap is nil, and success is directly proportional to how quickly he or she can perform effectively iln the position. A collection of such information is provided.
