Abstract : On June 27-28, 1983, the Organizational Effectiveness Program, Office of Naval Research, sponsored a workshop on productivity in the federal sector. Objectives of the meeting were to bring together productivity-enhancement researchers and managers to: a) exchange information on their programs and research, and b) identify issues and problems that could benefit from new or expanded research. Eighteen papers were given. This report contains a summary of highlights from the speakers' presentations and from the discussions they generated; the bulk of the report consists of the papers themselves. A roster of participants' addresses and telephone numbers is included. Papers presented the following agencies: Departments of Defense, Air Force, Navy, and Labor; General Accounting Office; National Aeronautics and Space Administration; National Institute of Education; and National Science Foundation.
