Giauque, William C.
As part of the Design of Training Systems project, the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, was assigned a sixfold task by the Training Analysis and Evaluation Group: (1) analyse the functional description of the Naval Education Training and Command (NAVEDTRACOM) from the standpoint of how decisions are made; (2) review the literature bearing on decision theory as applied to large-scale organizations; (3) develop a taxonomy of the types of decisions made by managers within the NAVEDTRACOM; (4) develop criteria for evaluating decisions within the NAVEDTRACOM; (5) develop recommendations for improving the present decision-making process; and (6) develop a description of the optimum method of decision-making. Findings on each point are summarized, along with recommendations for future decision-making policies and implementation strategies. (SK)
