This thesis explores the potentialities and survival problems of a Human Resources Management Program in the U. S. Navy and proposes a technique for measuring its potential impact on the naval organization. The intended application of this work is to the practice of human resources management in the context of the U. S. Navy from both a theoretical and practical viewpoint. The proposed measurement technique is designed to provide a type of "third level" information, more specific than currently exists, which is deemed critical to the real-time application of this emerging practice. The main premise of the thesis is that such contributions of increased analytical measurement capabilities in human resources management will be the critical factors at present in determining if, in reality, this "humanized" approach to naval management will pass its first test of survival in the existing organization. Such a test is its ability to define its role and capabilities to others and to produce some "scientifically acceptable" measure of its impact on Navy organizations.
