MetadataShow full item record
This study examines the management control procedures used by Navy club and recreation programs. It discusses management control theory available in literature and uses Anthony and Young's model of programming, budgeting, operations and measurement, evaluation, and reporting as a basis for the ensuing discussion. NMPC policies in the area of management control are described with particular emphasis being given to Project "Smart Compass". A summary of interviews with managers at three levels in the chain of command documents actual practice in use at sample commands. Particular strengths and weaknesses of control systems are discussed in an analysis of theory, policy and practice. Though the study was done at Navy club and recreations programs, the conclusions and recommendations are applicable to club and recreation program of all four armed service branches.
