Abstract:

Organizational performance at status quo is not a typical goal set by organizations. It is just the harmonic frequency to which all organizations will tend to migrate. This is the comfort zone for employers and employees. There are no innovations or creativity, no thinking outside of the box. Everything has become second nature and occurs in every organization that becomes complacent. Why make things difficult and change Through the responses from a survey instrument, this capstone project assesses an Army organization and defines the current organizational structure, the advantages and disadvantages of the structure, and recommends opportunities for improvement based on contemporary management theories and practices. It is the fear of obsolescence that should motivate organizations to continually improve. Competition for funding is driving the Sensors Directorate to take a serious look at the way they do business. It takes conviction from management to ask, What are we doing and how can we improve and even more to learn from the response. This project will provide the Sensors Directorate with a baseline for which they can measure change for the future.
