Abstract : By using a craftsman questionnaire, this thesis identifies and ranks the most important factors impairing Petty Officer productivity and morale in the United States Naval Construction Force (Seabees). In addition, the author provides recommendations to eliminate or reduce the management constraints which cause unfavorable productivity and lower morale. Data for this study came from 61 surveys completed by active duty Seabee Petty Officers assigned to U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion ONE, Construction Battalion Unit FOUR ONE EIGHT, and Construction Battalion Unit FOUR TWO SEVEN, and by reserve Seabee Petty Officers assigned to Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit THREE ZERO THREE.
