Abstract
The objective of this thesis was to analyze the organizational effectiveness of the Harpoon ILS organization. Specifically the study attempts to answer the question: How does the Harpoon ILSMT function and how effective is it in achieving ILS objectives? Four aspects of this question were addressed: (1) an analytical description of the ILSMT, (2) as assessment of the ILSMT and its supportive role, (3) an evaluation of current ILSMT effectiveness, and (4) recommendations for improved ILS organizational design. The author chose to view the organization as a system of mutually dependent variables (modern organization theory) and selected Scott's Model as the vehicle for analysis. Although the ILSMT is composed of personnel from varied functional commands, the contractor, and other government agencies, this study is limited to those Navy representatives of the PMA, NAVAIR, and NAVSEA.
