Application of Research Management Techniques.
Croft, Don B., Ed.; Koenig, Adolph J., Ed.
The symposium papers in this document describe specific applications of research management techniques currently being used by research and development organizations. Topics of the papers are based on subjects practicing R & D managers have found important in the management of research. Although the symposium was not specifically designed to include all aspects of research management, the papers when taken together comprise a "working" model for managing the information associated with R & D activities. Topics of the five papers include (1) a prototype research management system whereby information is organized for easy retrieval by research managers, (2) a description of organizational operations procedures and policies that reduce the administrative burden on researchers and developers and assist management in operating an effective R & D organization, (3) a system for using the computer to manage information about the financial expenditures of an R & D organization, (4) the application of a research management procedure, the Convergence Technique, with the Reading Research Program sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education, and (5) the steps necessary for planning and implementing a research and development program.
