Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; In recent year the topic of empowerment has gained much attention among managers. This thesis is a case study analysis of one Naval Hospital Commanding Officer, Captain William R. Rowley, who has a reputation in his community as an innovator and advocate for empowerment. It presents a model of Captain Rowley's leadership philosophy. This model was found to be consistent with empowering leadership strategies as demonstrated by the close fit with two theories of empowerment. Captain Rowley's leadership was found to result in the achievement of positive change and improvement at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and to be consistent with sound practices of management control. His leadership model was also found to be consistent with the basic tenets of TQL and has resulted in successful progress toward full implementation of TQL at the command. Based on the successes described in this thesis, it is proposed that this model is useful for Navy Medicine as a viable leadership option.; Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; The pursuit of quality through quality assurance/control programs has been augmented in the recent past by implementing an organization-wide Total Quality Leadership (TQL) program at the Repair Division, Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia. Most TQL concepts have been successfully integrated into the culture of the Repair Division. One concept yet to be integrated deals with capturing the costs related to achieving quality. This TQL concept known as 'Cost of Quality' is the subject of this thesis. This study evaluates the TQL program, quality control program,- and the cost accounting systems to determine if implementing a quality cost measurement system would provide benefits for better managing quality related costs. From this evaluation, a model of the Repair Division's cost of quality was derived. Also outlined in the study were procedures which guide the implementation of a quality cost measurement system. The analysis revealed that the implementation of a quality cost measurement system would be a beneficial tool for management. This system would allow management to plan and control the allocation of funds used to achieve goals related to quality. The need to improve the cost accounting systems and better tracking of detailed production costs are recommended.; U.S. Navy (USN) author

The Department of the Navy's approach to total quality management has been evolving for over a decade. Although, tremendous strides have been made at the highest levels within DON, resistance remains at the lower levels. Management control systems within the Government and particularly the military are very much traditional in nature. Adoption of total quality management necessitates a change of the current management control system. The authors compare a theoretical model of a traditional management control system with common elements of a total quality management control system. They also conduct a case study of an actual management control system in a corporation that successfully adopted the philosophy of total quality management. Modeling both types of management control systems and comparing both models to an actual total quality management control system provides a framework for stimulating discussion and learning at all levels in Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense and other Government Agencies.; Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy
