Abstract : Jobs that are dull, repetitive, and seemingly meaningless cause personal and work problems, and many organizations are turning to work redesign to solve these problems. The purpose of this study was to perform a work redesign project in a military organization. It attempted to determine whether work redesign was possible in such a setting and if the application of the Job Characteristics Model (JCM) of work redesign would lead to positive personal and organizational work outcomes.
