Since 1952 this classic handbook has helped young naval officers take charge in their first division and has served as a valued resource for petty officers and more senior officers. In clear and concise language it lays out the basic tools for a junior officer: leadership, organization, management, training, team of workers, administration, career management, information float, and a host of other key lessons. This new edition, revised by two serving naval officers with decades of experience, brings the guide fully up-to-the-minute for the challenge of twenty-first century leadership and management both afloat and ashore. Capturing dramatic changes in networked management systems, installed shipboard LANs, the usage of e-mail as a basic tool, and mentoring concepts for sailors, and offering up to date figures, appendices, and links to key websites, that is an indispensable a part of the seabag of each and every junior officer in as of late’s Navy.
