Abstract : The research focuses on identification of significant regulatory factors influencing the upper level managers of technically oriented Navy Activities. The most often cited constraints were civilian personnel and acquisition regulations. Other constraints identified were rotation of military managers, political influence, and lack of planning. It was concluded that personnel constraints were primarily a result of the poor working relationship between the personnel function and the functional organization. In the case of the acquisition system, the problem is mainly regulatory in nature, but may be alleviated through increased cooperation between the supply personnel and the requiring activity. The constraints are analyzed and method to improve performance are suggested. (Author)
