Abstract : This is a personal view of applied mathematics in a truly nonacademic setting (an operational Navy Command), based on my experiences as a field representative of the Operations Evaluation Group. The principles that can make analysis effective in such a setting are described and explained. The intermeshing of people and personality is as important as the fields themselves. The traits that a mathematician needs to effect change by his analysis are discussed. A number of specific examples are provided to illustrate the kinds of problems that can be encountered. (Author)
