Transactional Processes in Ford Training and Placement Program.
McCampbell, James F.
This report studies the transactional style of organizational processes which emphasizes the interaction of both role expectations and requirements of the institution, and of need-dispositions of the individual. This paper uses the Ford Training and Placement Program as a specific means of illustrating: (1) the reasons for adopting a transactional process; (2) the characteristics and effects of the process; and (3) considerations for making it successful. The study investigates such characteristics of the transactional style as: (1) structures based on the concept of parity; (2) roles defined as interfaces between groups; and (3) the prevailing process of negotiation. The report cites organizational constraints, the need of a new vehicle for feedback and change, and the value of the method itself as reasons to develop a transactional style of organizational process.
