Abstract : Management of human resources has become an increasingly significant factor in providing our military with a competent and ready force structure. As national defense budget allocations have dwindled and will continue to do so in the near years, productivity has become the front runner of Department Of Defense and Congressional issues. To operate as a viable business in the environment of today is to assure survival as more and more DOD activities search for alternate means of resourcing. It is not enough to reach out for additional resources; DOD must manage what is available as effectively as possible and that means enhancing the productivity of today's workers. Frank Cipolla, assistant to the Director, National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), sees human resource management as key to addressing the uncertainties of the '90s. The unpredictability of the labor workforce, changes in workplace technology, organizational structures, and the international climate, plus downsizing of the Department of Defense, all require federal managers to focus on the human resource issue if we are to succeed in accomplishing our work.
