The Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) contracted with the Naval Postgraduate School to identify the competencies required to effectively manage military treatment facilities (MTF) and to later design and implement an effective executive management education (EME) program. Eighty semistructured, in-depth interviews were conducted with senior medical department executives from 11 health MTFs with the goal of distinguishing these competencies. The information gathered from these interviews lead to the development of a survey instrument that was mailed to 720 senior Navy Medical officers. The intent of the survey was to identify the perceived current level of skill and the perceived required level of skill of these officers across 60 different survey items. The gaps, or deltas, between these two perceptions imply areas of performance that could be enhanced by the EME program. This thesis provides an analysis of the survey responses associated with organizational behavior with respect to the respondents' corps, ranks, position held, years of managerial experience, gender, and short course experience. Significant differences among these cohorts indicate areas of organizational behavior that may require further study or inclusion in the EME program.
