Kovack, Christopher T.
MetadataShow full item record
This study assesses contracting process capabilities at Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in Patuxent River, Maryland, using the Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM). The primary purpose of this study is to analyze NAVAIR's contracting processes to identify key process area strengths and weaknesses and to provide a roadmap for improvement. This study also focuses on assessing organizational culture at the NAVAIR Contracting Directorate. Several studies have shown that organizational factors, such as organizational culture, are strong determinants of performance. Other studies have shown that when an organization is dominated by a culture type, the most effective leaders are those that demonstrate a matching leadership style. This study uses the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) to identify the organization's current and preferred culture type as viewed by the leadership at the organization. The results will provide the NAVAIR leaders an awareness of culture type so they can match their leadership style to the assessed culture for optimum performance.
