    MANAGEMENT has been defined in many different ways ever since the pioneers in this field, notably H. Fayol and F. Taylor, established the basic criteria for the understanding of critical issues involved in it. The definitions vary from each other, sometimes significantly, but they all have a common framework. It is a task-oriented framework which describes management as a collection of activities,... View full abstract»

    This study investigated the first industrial job performance of a group of engineering students. The dimensions of task characteristics and performance evaluation criteria were examined. It was found that a significant portion of total variance in overall performance rating could be accounted for by a mixed measure of the student's intellectual, motivational, and interpersonal qualities. No signif... View full abstract»

    There are very few empirical studies in the project management and R&D literature comparing the relative effectiveness of groups versus individuals in developing a project plan. This study focuses on this issue and two aspects of planning effectiveness — quality and acceptance. Members of 80 groups completed a simulation, the Project Planning Situation, first individually and then as... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an empirical study on the practices of R&D management with special emphasis on the project selection behavior in a newly industrializing country, Korea. Based on a review of literature pertaining to the R&D project selection, a survey framework has been generated. The data were collected from 73 laboratories of Korean private companies through a structured questio... View full abstract»

    Organizational structures must be related to the type of work being performed, but they must also meet the needs of individuals working in the organization. The relationships between matrix structures and quality of working life values are explored, as they appear in Quebec engineering projects. The impact of matrix structures on work motivation and satisfaction is investigated, when comparisons a... View full abstract»

    This study empirically estimates the determinants of the research and development, dividend, investment, and financing decisions of 303 firms during the 1978–1982 period. Composite variables are constructed to gain insights into the intertemporal relationships among the firm financial decision variables. This study adds to the literature on financial planning by providing empirical estimate... View full abstract»

    The role of the National Bureau of Standards is analyzed within the context of the innovation process and the various rationales for government support of this process. Industry is found to systematically underinvest in evaluated data and such nonproprietary technologies as measurement and test methods. Underinvestment by industry in measurement-related data and technologies results from both the ... View full abstract»

    This paper aims at developing a systematic way for allocating resources among different R&D projects in a multiple objective environment. For this purpose Delphic Goal Programming (DGP) is proposed as follows. Initially, a Delphi inquiry is conducted to identify the objectives to be considered in problem formulation. Successive rounds of Delphi will then be utilized to prioritize these obje... View full abstract»
