The Turkish Army like other organizations tries to keep up with the change in all areas and uses some methods of change. One of the areas is management and the method of change used by The Army is training and development of its officers at managerial positions. The army needs to know whether its officers need training or not. A needs analysis should be done for this. This study tries to determine whether the officers at two managerial positions, company and battalion commanders, need training in nine topics of management skills. The topics are: problem solving, stress management, organizing/coordinating, conflict management, motivating, coaching and counseling, team building, communication, empowering/delegating. A questionnaire is developed and used to collect the data. Determining the needs is the first step of designing training programs.
