Opportunities Industrialization Centers: A Synthesis and Analysis of Fifteen OIC Final Reports.
Legal Resources, Inc., Washington, DC.
The records, findings, and recommendations of 15 opportunities Industrialization Centers (OIC) were synthesized and analyzed so that individual OICs and other manpower programs could benefit. A detailed review of the final reports of the OICs and three field visits were made to collect data. To facilitate comparison, each of the chapters contains a general summary, the author's comments, and recommendations made by the OICs. The author noted that individual OIC reports suffered from overgeneralization and a defensive portrayal of the program. The statistical analyses were weak and prevented a thorough examination of trainee characteristics and job placements. The best features of the reports were their sensitive treatment of OIC goals and their description of program functions. (BC)
