Abstract : The purpose of this study was to survey the attitudes of the Air Force Materials Laboratory personnel concerning major interest areas. Primary emphasis was placed on the evaluation of the laboratory organizational climate in order that the study might provide laboratory management with a broad understanding of the motivational forces, communication effectiveness and decision making processes within the organization. The survey, designed as an attitude questionnaire, was sent to all personnel within AFML. Data gathered were analysed to evaluate AFML's organizational climate in terms of Rensis Likert's Management Systems 1, 2, 3, and 4, and to provide baseline measurements for the laboratory's human resources management programs.
