KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION AND UTILIZATION IN CONTEMPORARY ORGANIZATIONS.
CARTER, LAUNOR F.
THE UTILIZATION OF KNOWLEDGE IS ONE OF THE IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS IN COPING WITH CONTEMPORARY PROBLEMS. THIS PAPER DISCUSSES THE QUESTION OF PRIORITIES IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AND ITS PLACE IN THE NATIONAL SCENE, DESCRIBES THREE STUDIES DEALING WITH THE PROBLEM OF COORDINATING RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND USE (PROJECT HINDSIGHT, THE TACOMA GOODWILL INDUSTRIES PROJECT, AND A TRAVELING SEMINAR AND CONFERENCE FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EDUCATION INNOVATION), AND CONSIDERS VARIOUS ASPECTS OF INFORMATION TRANSFER AS A NATIONAL PROBLEM. DIRECTIONS FOR INITIATING A PROPER ROLE OF KNOWLEDGE DEVELOPMENT IN OUR CULTURE INCLUDE--(1) THE SOLUTION MUST BE SOUGHT WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE PROBLEM, (2) THE SOLUTION TO CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL PROBLEMS WILL BE COMPLEX AND MANY-FACETED, (3) CERTAIN CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR THE SUCCESSFUL ATTACK ON MAJOR PROBLEMS, (4) THE CONCEPT OF ASSESSMENT IS FUNDAMENTAL TO SOLVING SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS, (5) A NEW PROFESSION OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING OR EDUCATIONAL ENGINEERING NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED, (6) SIMPLE SOLUTIONS AND INSTANT EXPERTS ARE COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE, AND (7) A SPECIAL PROBLEM EXISTS BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE GATEKEEPER IN CONTEMPORARY PROBLEM AREAS. THIS DOCUMENT IS A DRAFT OF A PAPER PRESENTED AT THE UCEA CAREER DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR, CO-SPONSORED BY THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION AND THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON (17TH, PORTLAND, OREGON, OCTOBER 22-25, 1967).
