    THE five technical articles in this issue all relate to one general theme in the management of R, D, & E — problems of measurement for use in decisionmaking, evaluation, and control. Three of these five papers were written by people currently working in industrial or government organizations, and a fourth was written as the result of a summer visiting program in a government organiza...

    Relationships between organizational factors and the performance of 151 engineers were studied to determine the extent to which the factors preceded performance and performance preceded the factors. Four factors were related significantly to subsequent performance: involvement in work, colleague contact, diversity of work activities, and number of subordinates. Every factor studied (these four, pl... View full abstract»

    The problem of this study was to develop information that might help management of a laboratory complex. Fifteen measurable characteristics from 15 Army laboratories were studied in an attempt to find some that were strategic to the management of Army laboratories. Measurable characteristics were evaluated using two standards: 1) number of papers and invention disclosures, and 2) laboratory perfor... View full abstract»

    The increased use of incentive contracts has not eliminated, and may even have increased, the number of changes involved in the procurement of a major aerospace system. One kind of change is the program stretchout that extends the duration of an ongoing program by means of a formal contract change. The principal causes of program stretchouts and the potential benefits and costs resulting from stre... View full abstract»

    Models and techniques to aid management in planning and controlling R&D projects frequently use subjective probability of success forecasts as one of the major inputs. An experiment was conducted at the research laboratories of Monsanto Company to measure the predictive validity and consistency of such forecasts. The results indicate that the eventual success or failure of certain types of ... View full abstract»

    Engineers and scientists exhibit important differences other than the evident differences in degree discipline and type of work activity. For example, most engineers recognize managerial authority, want challenging assignments, and are employer-oriented. Scientists, however, respect “colleague” authority, want freedom to select projects, and are career-oriented. Most behavioral diffe... View full abstract»
