    One of the most discussed and philosophized-about processes of management — especially the management of technical functions such as Research, Development, and Engineering (R, D, &E) — is “communication.” In addition to the philosophizing, however, there has also been a great deal of measurement of various aspects of the communication process, as illustrated by t...

    This paper reports an empirical study of 115 participants in R & D planning in a large Federal Government agency. Two hypotheses were tested, examining the relationship between type of work planned and (a) the participants' perceived uncertainties and (b) the centralization of the decision-related communication net. The data indicate that perceived uncertainties tend to be lower, and communica... View full abstract»

    A business model is developed, based on the ideas of behavioral modeling, and two typical businesses are simulated including representations of environments and management strategies. The model is intended as a flexible framework for simulations useful in planning and is easily modified to represent particular situations, operating criteria, and available information. The performances of the two b... View full abstract»

    A `real' forecast of technological developments in farm tractors is presented here. The methods of Delphi and cross-impact analysis are used and briefly described along with some criticism in the background of the experience gained from their application. In addition, some purely methodological findings are noted. View full abstract»

    A number of variables were examined with respect to technical communication patterns in a research and development laboratory in the authors' initial investigation. Observed changes in technical assignment and administrative control were noted in three of the groups studied. Generally, the immediate response of a group of engineers to administrative change was to retain the communication patterns ... View full abstract»
