Key Academy personnel who worked in Basic Cadet Training during the Summer of 1984 were instructed in the Positive Motivation Model PMM. This model stressed the need for superiors to use positive motivation in working with subordinates. In order to assess the effectiveness of PMM, all of these personnel were asked to voluntarily complete a Pre-BCT Survey and a Post-BCT survey. An average of 70 percent of the eligible population completed these surveys. Analysis of variance procedures were utilized to analyze this data. The results of this analysis indicated that respondents believed that PMM was relevant to BCT, that PMM enabled users to be successful during BCT, and that the entire Cadet Wing should be trained in PMM. Limitations of the model and future uses of PMM are also discussed.
