This thesis is a descriptive organization analysis of N13, the Military (Navy) Personnel Plans and Policy Division. The purpose of the study was to describe the strategy, structure, processes, tasks, people, and culture of Nl3 using three models: the Systems model; the Configuration model, and, the Mintzberg model. Based on model comparisons, document reviews, semi-structured interviews and questionnaire responses of N13 leaders and managers, conclusions indicate that N13 is severely stressed due to personnel reductions and a partial relocation of BUPERS to Millington, Tennessee. N13 is struggling to cope with fast-changing 199Os problems using a post Cold War, Political-Reactive configuration. Recommendations are offered to assist leaders and managers in making systematic change to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of N13 as well as the manpower and personnel system. Specific recommendations include; realignment to a team-based community approach vice the current fragmented and duplicative approach; divestiture of non-core areas; and creation of a realistic training program tailored to rapidly enhance individual knowledge and skill sets.
