Abstract:

This report examines the replies of respondents to the Leadership and Management Development Center LMDC Organizational Assessment Package OAP survey. It identifies significant attitudinal differences between samples of Military Airlift Command MAC officer, enlisted, and civilian personnel and similar personnel in other Air Force commands and agencies. The OAP survey examines 21 attitudinal factors grouped into a systems model to assess three aspects of a work group input, process, and output. This research found statistically significant differences in all three personnel categories. MAC officers reported more work repetition. They also reported differences in all three personnel categories. MAC officers reported more work repetition. They also reported more positive attitudes toward Organizational Communications Climate and were less positive toward Skill Variety, ManagementSupervision, and Supervisory Communications Climate. MAC enlisted personnel were more positive toward Task Characteristic, Task Identity, Task Significance and Job Related Satisfaction and less positive in Work Support, ManagementSupervision, Supervisory Communications Climate, and General Organizational Climate. MAC civilians reported more positive attitudes in 19 of the 21 factors measured. Several possible causes for the results and recommendations are proposed based on these findings.
