Abstract : Two studies of the job demands of installation management are reported here. In Study 1, U.S. naval officers and civilians were interviewed regarding the knowledge and skill requirements of installation management. Seventeen core competency areas were extracted from these interviews and formed the basis of a survey administered to a sample of current installation commanding officers in Study 2. The survey focused on officers perceptions of each areas importance and of their level of preparation in each area. The results of both studies strongly suggest naval installation commanders desire and require more extensive and specialized education and training in the competency areas prior to assuming command of an installation.
