Burack, Elmer H.
The book is concerned with optimum manpower utilization in the private and public sectors and examines a variety of types of organizations. In this guide to structured manpower planning, contents include management and manpower in an era of change; a model of the overall manpower planning and implementation process; case material on technological change and the company; the framework of manpower planning and programming; uses of computer-based manpower information systems (the role of the computer, the data base and systems boundaries, the job market and matching systems, and system design); integrating planning and change; and emergent issues in change management (staff-support personnel, managerial obsolescence, delivery system for the disadvantaged, and two case studies related to technological change and environmental pressures). With emphasis placed on application and development of workable planning approaches, the book offers a broad framework in which such functions as personnel, wage and salary administration and industrial relations are viewed. Study questions and a bibliography are included. (NH)
