Abstract


This is a qualitative investigation aimed at analyzing the organizational culture of the Naval Education Department of the Royal Thai Navy and determining a cultural aspect management model to decrease the culture gap and promote unity in diversity. Research was conducted over a ten month period from November 2012 to August 2013. The study area was purposively selected and was composed of naval departments in three provinces: Bangkok, Nakhon Pathom and Chonburi. Data was collected by document study and field research. The tools used for data collection in the field were basic survey, participant and non-participant observation, structure and non-structured interview and focus group discussion. There are three major responsibilities of the Naval Education Department (NED). They are: 1) Education and Training; 2) Research; and 3) History. There are six categories of problems with the NED culture: structure, administration policy, leadership, manpower utilization, shared value and morals. The Cultural Aspect Management Model for Organization Development of Naval Education Department of The Royal Thai Navy is the ‘LISIS’ model, which is composed of leadership, inspiration, strategy, identity and shared values.
