Abstract:

This thesis examines the perceptions of personnel of the Navy Medical Department regarding the organizational restructuring which took place in 1989. Included in the thesis is a background discussion of the change effort including underlying causes, the nature of the restructuring, and implementation methods. Data for the thesis came from reference reviews, personal interviews with key players, and a survey questionnaire. The target population for the survey questionnaire was the financial management professionals within the Medical Department. The change effort is evaluated utilizing models drawn from change literature and focuses on comparing planned versus perceived actual outcomes, the perceptions of effectiveness of change leadership, and the perceived current status of management indicators.
