    IT IS probably more than coincidence that three of the six articles in this issue deal with subjects related to personnel in research, development, and engineering (RD&E). A number of factors in the environment and inside RD&E organizations have focused attention on particular aspects of personnel. These factors include the rate of change of the states of the various sciences and art... View full abstract»

    A conventional approach, to job analysis consists of the listing of technical tasks performed in the job and the identification of a number of worker requirements without full assessment of requirements of the total work situation. The approach of this study is that a “job” is a “work position” with three major dimensions, the Technical, the Organizational, and the Comm... View full abstract»

    Quantitative methods are being used increasingly to assist in the evaluation of new product strategies and numerous articles have appeared in the literature dealing with various aspects of this subject. This paper discusses the major considerations in the development of a comprehensive model that aids the decision maker in determining optimal strategies in a new product planning situation. It is s... View full abstract»

    While an increasing amount of effort is going into the study of the administration of research and development, several facets of the process appear to have gone unnoticed. In particular, we argue that a study of the informal organizations of researchers may offer insights in the administration of such personnel that can lead to improvements in the formal organization. The possibilities explored a... View full abstract»

    The first phase of a government R&D laboratory's career guidance program is described. A joint Naval Weapons Center (NWC)-California State Polytechnic College effort, the program is aimed at aiding both the individual and the organization by achieving more effective placement of professional employees through career guidance and counseling. The first phase involved the development of a job ... View full abstract»

    Ninty-nine large research and development laboratories were queried in a study of nonsupervisory technical career programs for scientists and engineers. Sixty-one responded and 48 of these provided significant information. Almost half of the 48 have technical career programs of varying forms and varying degrees of formality. Although technical career titles and structures are not uniform among lab... View full abstract»

    Long-range planning requires the use of a forecast, either implicit or explicit. The Delphi procedure is one method of obtaining an explicit forecast. This experiment was conducted to determine the problems and difficulties associated with the use of the Delphi procedure. It was concluded that the procedure is workable and does not require undue effort to be carried out. Information on man hours r... View full abstract»
