- Probably not known to most of the general public are how many military commands are in actuality dual commands. There is a mixed working relationship between military and civilian federal employees, and in the case of leadership, both Senior Military and Civilian government employees (General Schedule-GS) function together in leadership positions. The uniqueness of this type of dual leadership in an organization creates advantages and disadvantages when compared to the typical private or public sector organizations. The private and public organizations can adapt to changing internal and external forces more so than ever before due in part to technological advances and the establishing and coordination of cross-departmental and cross-functional teams to achieve goals. Contrastingly, the military being primarily a traditional hierarchy is not as quickly adaptable to change.
In the context of the current recession, the publicity of scandals involving fraud, waste, and abuse such as the recent GSA and Secret Service scandals, the future outlook of our Naval forces, and the results of Command Managed Equal Opportunity surveys and a focus group, this thesis explores leadership and organizational issues, problems, and implications as applied to a Navy Training Support Center.
