dc.description.abstractSurface Warfare Officers (SWO) attending the Naval Postgraduate School were surveyed on career issues pertaining to career path specialization, warfare skills, SWO qualification, and their impact on readiness. Survey results indicate that: (1) SWO technical competency does not mandate specialization as a means to enhance readiness, (2) assigning department heads to single 30+ month tours and/or rotating them to provide officer continuity through work-up and deployment may enhance readiness, (3) implementation of SWO qualification policy may not be supporting adequate qualification standards. Recommendations include: (1) analyses of officer perceptual attitudes and viewpoints should be part of policy formulation, (2) feasibility and readiness impact studies of alternative department head assignment rotation and tour length policies should be completed, (3) revisions to the methods used to implement SWO qualification requirements should be examined.en_US
