Abstract : The Venezuelan Naval Aviation Organization created in 1962 has experienced a continual evolution in accordance with changes in the environment surrounding it. From a tiny Aviation Office, it has evolved into an Operational Command within the Venezuelan Navy. However, during the last 7 years the Naval Aviation Command has experimented with several structural reorganizations in an attempt to find a suitable structure for its organizational requirements. This thesis assesses the purpose, environment, and formal organization of the Venezuelan Naval Aviation Organization to identify the structural deficiencies that could be improved upon. After analyzing three possible structures, the one considered the best fit for current organizational requirements was recommended as possible solution to the structural deficiencies encountered. Keywords: Structural organization analysis, Historical evolution, Organizational arrangements, Structural problems, Strengths and Weaknesses, Organizational coordinating mechanisms, Theses.
