The purpose of this thesis was to assess the Total Quality Leadership (TQL) knowledge, experience, and attitude levels of Naval officers entering the Naval Postgraduate School in July 1993. A survey was designed, administered, and analyzed to establish a baseline of data to compare to future cohorts to assess whether TQL knowledge and experience is increasing at various career check points. A descriptive analysis was conducted to calculate frequencies and aggregate percentages of survey responses. In general the cohort had a low level of TQL knowledge and experience. The study revealed some skepticism among the cohort about the need for TQL, and its transformation in the Department of the Navy. This skepticism was attributed to a lack of knowledge and experience, and the belief that long-term commitment from senior leadership is lacking. Recommendations were made to incorporate TQL theory and concepts at every accession point (NROTC, OCS, OIS, etc.) and schools (Department Head, PXO, Naval Academy, NPS, PO INDOC, NAVLEAD, etc.) to disseminate the TQL knowledge in a uniform manner
