Abstract : This thesis looks at the subject of change in a complex organization. In early 1980 an organizational element of the U.S. Coast Guard experimented with the concept of consolidating personnel records. Success in that experiment along with other external pressures are moving the entire (Coast Guard) organization toward a more centralized personnel records system. This supports a final goal of an automated, computerized pay system. A primary purpose of this study was to examine and document early efforts at implementing change, with problem identification as a goal. A survey questionnaire administered to Coast Guard Yeomen seeks to identify the concerns of those personnel (in the speciality rating) most actively involved in personnel work. This thesis also identifies areas for strategic planning consideration to assist Coast Guard leaders and managers in the continuing organization-wide (Personnel Support Center) implementation process.
