Why are some F-14 and A-6 squadrons head and shoulders above others? What makes a squadron excellent? This is the question for this research. The study was conducted in two phases. Phase one involved interviews with 25 senior officers with some past experience in F-14 and A-6 communities. They were queried about their definitions of excellence and were asked to nominate a squadron which met their criteria for excellence. Phase two began with the tabulation of excellent squadrons selected by the senior officers. For the most part the selections in each category and community were unanimous. The selected squadrons were then visited and personnel within the squadron were interviewed and queried about why they felt they were chosen as the excellent squadrons and what they did that was different from other squadrons. The result of this research has been analyzed and is presented in Chapter two in comprehensive detail. Chapter three contains the summary of what was found.
