The purpose of this study was to determine the most appropriate and effective manner in which to provide feedback to the unit commander after a Marine Corps Combat Readiness Evaluation System (MCCRES). To this end research was conducted into the areas of management control and evaluation theory. The approach of the study was multi-disciplinary with a detailed emphasis on the economic question of how better distribution could be made of the scarce resources of manpower, equipment, and training time based on the results of MCCRES. To answer the questions a detailed field study was conducted in which interviews were completed with 37 Marine officers of rank from Captain to Colonel who had involvement with MCCRES as key billet holders. The results of the study are displayed as an eight-step feedback model which is based on accepted theory in the fields of management control and evaluation theory. These results are communicated to the reader as a descriptive model. The incorporation of this model as the Standard MCCRES Feedback Procedure will enhance the value of the results to the evaluated unit and will improve the understanding of the resource allocation needs at all levels.
