    The concepts of transactional analysis are applied to teams of engineers. These ideas show the engineer how `he' can change and that he alone is responsible for what happens in the future, no matter what has happened in the past. Transactional analysis offers a framework for increased communication to facilitate engineering decision making. Since transactional analysis is a behaviour model, it can... View full abstract»

    Concern over a decline in the productivity of research and development (R&D) activities in the US economy has stimulated a search for ways to correct this situation. This paper presents a model of the RD/I process and a list of candidate experiments. The model was developed on the basis of an analysis of significant variables found by other researchers, case studies, and interviews with resear... View full abstract»

    In order to define behaviorally the R&D manager's job, extensive interviews and observations were conducted of R&D managers. The result is a categorical description of the R&D manager's job with a start of behavioral definition in each category. A validation of the categorical model was performed. View full abstract»
