    Boundary-spanning activity (BSA) was studied in two departments of a large governmental research and development organization. BSA was found to be higher and to have significant effects for employees when departmental goals were unclear and technology was non-routine. Under these conditions, BSA was negatively related to role ambiguity and positively related to job satisfaction. Contrary to prior ... View full abstract»

    Most research on the management of scientific and engineering personnel in industrial organizations has tended to lump both groups into a single category of `professionals' assuming that they exhibit essentially the same behavioral characteristics. Consequently, managerial practices for utilizing, motivating, and `managing' these groups have been largely based on the assumption of the professional... View full abstract»

    Two empirical studies of 95 research scientists and 155 university professors indicate that professionals in formal organizations perceive themselves at higher levels of role performance in the presence of the organic system of management set forth by Burns and Stalker in their research of the English and Scottish electronics industries in the 1950's. The findings suggest that managers should adop... View full abstract»

    Directed at the legal, engineering, and management aspects of product safety. A historical development of the law of products liability is traced through statutory and case law. In addition, the importance of governmental agencies in regulating product safety is explained. A pragmatic systems approach for enhancing product safety is offered as an aid to the manufacturing engineer. View full abstract»

    Sequentiality in decision making is an inherent characteristic of the R&D process. Conceptual changes are noted during the course of the project which represent a continuous improvement in the quality of the data available during the various project stages. When using single evaluation models, a contradiction is observed in that the same tool is used for varying conditions such as levels of R&... View full abstract»

    Several formerly independent trends including the increasing rate of technological change, the demand for greater efficiency and productivity in R&D and innovation, and the need for applying technology to the solution of pressing social and economic problems have recently begun to reinforce each other resulting in renewed interest in technology transfer activities and research. The prolifer... View full abstract»
