BELL, GORDON
THIS STUDY WAS AN EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THREE COURSES IN THE SMALL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT TRAINING PROGRAM CONDUCTED IN BRITISH COLUMBIA--PERSONNEL, MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING, AND MARKETING FOR MANUFACTURERS. THE CONCEPT OF ADOPTION WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE TO WHICH RESPONDENTS MADE USE OF SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES. DATA WERE COLLECTED BY INTERVIEWING A RANDOM SAMPLE OF PARTICIPANTS IN EACH COURSE. GAINS IN THE DEGREE OF ADOPTION AMONG RESPONDENTS IN ALL COURSES WERE SIGNIFICANT AT THE 1 PERCENT LEVEL. AN ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE AMONG MEANS OF ADOPTION SCORES IN RELATION TO SEVERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF RESPONDENTS INDICATED THAT THREE--EDUCATION, THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE RESPONDENT TO THE BUSINESS, AND THE NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES IN THE BUSINESS--HAD A SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP TO THE DEGREE OF ADOPTION. SCORES ON THE THREE SCALES USED TO MEASURE REACTIONS TO COURSE, INSTRUCTOR, AND COURSE CONTENT RESPECTIVELY INDICATE A FAVORABLE REACTION IN EACH CASE AND FOR EACH COURSE. THIS MASTERS THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, VANCOUVER. 91 PAGES. (AUTHOR/PT)
