Upgrading in an Industrial Setting. Final Report.
The project objectives were: (1) to assess existing industrial upgrading practices in an Atomic Energy Commission contractor organization, (2) to design new alternative upgrading methods, (3) to experiment with new upgrading methods, (4) to plan for utilization of proven upgrading programs, and (5) to document and disseminate activities. A twelve page section of the report is in the form of a separate paper, titled The Validity and Utility of Simulation Techniques, discussing the operation of an assessment center for employee upgrading. A further 30 pages appear to be from a booklet explaining how the assessment center is used for identification of first-line supervisors. Six pages summarize the impact of management practices, training programs, legislation, collective bargaining agreement, and employee mobility on employee upgrading. The final three pages briefly evaluate the success of the assessment center and the opportunity counselling it provided. (SA)
