The merging of the telecommunications and automatic data processing disciplines within the U.S. Navy to form Naval Computers and Telecommunications Command will result in many changes in the organization. One such change may be the merge between the enlisted ratings that perform the tasks of Radioman and Data Processing Technician. Background concerning the discipline merge and both ratings is presented, along with a discussion of organizational change. Findings from interviews with subject matter experts and others from both ratings were analyzed together with the results of two independent studies of a merge feasibility. The authors recommendation concerning the decision to merge Radiomen and Data processing Technicians is presented along with the possible strategies to accomplish the merge, should the final official decision favor such a change.
