Executives for the Federal Service: A Program for Action in Time of Crisis

By John J. Corson | Go to book overview

II. THE DEMAND FOR
EXECUTIVES

THE NUMBER

THE management of the executive branch of the Federal government required approximately 3,300 executives in 1950.1 This number includes only those who manage and direct the activities of Federal agencies.2 It does not include scientists and professional people--actuaries, chemists, doctors, engineers, lawyers, physicists, and others--unless they simultaneously manage and direct an organizational unit. It does not include uniformed members of the armed services or members of the Foreign Service. Roughly, it includes those individuals serving the Federal government as civilian executives at salaries of $10,000 per annum and above. This group constitutes but a handful of the more than two and a quarter million

As of June 30, 1950, the Civil Service Commission reported a total of 2,306 individuals in positions classified in grade GS-15. To this total must be added 650 positions now classified in the "super grades" GS-16-18 and a total of approximately 400 unclassified executive positions as directors, commissioners, etc.

Milton Mandell of the U.S. Civil Service Commission, in an unpublished study of the problem of executive selection, defines an executive as "one whose job requires that he spend at least 50 percent of his time in program planning, program selling, and coordination."
