Others describe and discuss new technology in military training, IBM field engineering training, current Federal legislation, employment opportunities for women, the systems approach to training and development, the need to improve communication and cooperation between the universities and business, and applications of behavioral science knowledge and methods in human relations training by the National Training Laboratories.
