    This is one of the issues (in contrast to some of our special issues and special sections) that covers a wide range of topics on the management of Research, Development, and Engineering, (R, D, &E). The topics range across the spectrum of the R, D, &E process — from the kind of problem solving that goes on in technical groups to considerations of customer response to product c...

    Describes the research and development (R&D) phase of a hypothetical large-scale electronic system. The methodology, system design concepts, cost effectiveness and customer acceptance considerations presented herein are based on a synthesis of various R&D programs. An attempt is made to provide a quantitative evaluation of newly introduced `customer acceptance' parameters, which include su... View full abstract»

    A procedure is developed to predict the performance of combinations of two businesses for comparison with the performance of the businesses operating individually. Included are general relationships of combined performance, the definition of several types of combination and their simulation using previously developed business models. A large number of computational experiments are performed to sho... View full abstract»

    This longitudinal study examines the changes in career goals of engineers and scientists who were members of an organization undergoing significant changes as a result of environmentally induced pressures. Career goal data were gathered by questionnaires in 1969 (N=265) and in 1973 (N=373). The results indicate that some change in career goals does occur in response to changes both i...

    A number of claims have been made for the effectiveness of group brainstorming as a means of enhancing creativity in problem solving groups, and the technique has been quite widely used for this purpose. There is, however, little solid evidence for the superiority of group to pooled individual brainstorming. This paper reviews the available evidence, and reports three new experiments evaluating gr...
