    DAVIS, in the first article, continues an aspect of the theme of the first article in the September issue by Rubin, Stedry, and Willets — the content of the job of the R, D, and E administrator. While the latter article focuses on the time allocation among the supervisor's various functions, Davis concentrates on the nature of these functions (roles) themselves. View full abstract»

    The program manager's understanding of his management role is compared with his superior's and his subordinates' understanding of it. Seven role dimensions of his job are studied based on published studies of the task emphasis managers give to their role.

    This paper is an analysis of some of the conflicts found in one particular type of research and development organization — a large, high-prestige, full-capability, weapons development laboratory maintained by the U. S. Navy. The conflict situations, which are “unanticipated consequences” (or less important consequences) of bureaucratic decisions, are organized in terms of type... View full abstract»

    The power and usefulness of flowgraphs to formulate and utilize models of complex financial and administrative problems are demonstrated. Specific problems investigated in detail include the compound interest evaluations, the Hoskold Transformation for determining profitability in research, the weighted guidelines approach for establishing profit in R and D contracts, and the solution of problems ...

    The relationship of satisfaction, both desired and obtained, and ability to engineering productivity is discussed. The influence of ability on productivity is described together with the relationship of ability and job requirements. The underlying job frustration because of a lack of know-how is compared to the frustration resulting from ability exceeding job requirement. Since aspirations change,... View full abstract»
