The purpose of this study was to determine those factors affecting organizational performance in the primary area of Enlisted Recruiting production of the district in both time periods using a systems analysis. Based on model comparisons, document reviews, interviews, and personal communications with the leaders, supervisors and recruiters of NRD San Diego, analysis indicates that the district of FY97-98 was ill-equipped in strategy, resources and processes to perform effectively in a more demanding environment.
