Research Management--Of What Nature Is the Concept?
Cook, Desmond L.
Research management is defined as the application of both management and management science to a particular field of research and development activities. Seven components of research management include theory and methodology; the planning, implementation, and evaluation of research programs; communications; utilization; and special applications. Three general approaches to the study of R and D management focus on behavioral, economic, and operational concerns. Major problem areas include methods of measuring the effectivenss of R and D organizations, the optimum connection of R and D with production and marketing, and dissemination of research findings. Study programs to prepare R and D managers for creative leadership are suggested. A bibliography of 78 items published between 1957 and 1969 is appended. (JK)
