PUTTING RESEARCH, EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION FINDINGS TO USE. MDTA EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION FINDINGS, NUMBER 1.
Office of Manpower Policy, Evaluation, and Research (DOL), Washington, DC.
THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR HELD A 2-DAY SEMINAR IN NOVEMBER 1966 IN WASHINGTON, D.C. TO POOL EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE, AND IDEAS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE UTILIZATION OF RESEARCH FINDINGS. THE PARTICIPANTS REPRESENTED THE OFFICE OF MANPOWER POLICY, EVALUATION, AND RESEARCH (OMPER), OTHER COMPONENTS OF THE MANPOWER ADMINISTRATION, OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES WHICH ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES SIMILAR TO OMPER'S EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM, AND SOME NONGOVERNMENTAL PERSONS INVOLVED IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. THE ACTIVITIES OF THE SEMINAR INCLUDED THE PRESENTATION OF PAPERS BY MEMBERS OF THE SEMINAR PLANNING COMMITTEE TO DESCRIBE THE CURRENT UTILIZATION ACTIVITIES OF THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES, THE OBSTACLES TO UTILIZATION, AND THE PROGRAM TO PROMOTE UTILIZATION WHICH THEY WOULD INSTITUTE IF GIVEN FULL AUTHORITY TO DO SO. TWO CASE STUDIES, ONE OF A PROJECT WHICH HAD SUCCESSFUL UTILIZATION AND ONE WHICH HAD IMPORTANT FINDINGS BUT RELATIVELY UNSUCCESSFUL UTILIZATION WERE PRESENTED. SEMINAR SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVED RESEARCH UTILIZATION INCLUDE--(1) STIMULATING GOOD PROPOSAL IDEAS, (2) IMPROVING THE GRANT OR CONTRACT NEGOTIATION PROCEDURE TO ACHIEVE MORE EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION, (3) IMPROVING THE INTERACTION BETWEEN FUNDER AND GRANTEE OR CONTRACTOR, (4) CLARIFYING THE KINDS OF ACTION WHICH MIGHT RESULT FROM EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION PROJECT FINDINGS, (5) TRANSLATING FINDINGS INTO ACTION, (6) TRAINING WASHINGTON EXPERIMENTAL, DEMONSTRATION, AND RESEARCH PROGRAM STAFFS, AND (7) DEVELOPING BETTER INTERAGENCY COORDINATION IN INVESTIGATING PROBLEM AREAS. A SELECTED LITERATURE REVIEW, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, A POSITION PAPER OF THE BUREAU OF RESEARCH, CURRENT ACTIVITIES OF SOME FEDERAL AGENCIES IN DISSEMINATION AND UTILIZATION, AND MODELS OF THE CHANGE PROCESS IN RELATION TO IMPLEMENTATION ARE INCLUDED.
