Individualization of Manpower Services: A Sourcebook of Ideas.
Glaser, Edward M.; And Others
The Federally-sponsored manpower development project is concerned with two major issues: (1) ways to determine what particular services are needed by given clients in manpower programs for the disadvantaged, and (2) ways to organize a manpower program so that each individual receives appropriate services to fulfill individual needs. Following two introductory sections defining relevant constructs, 17 case studies of innovative programs and procedures are presented to help manpower program planners and administrators think about individualization in new ways. Case study programs include: Individualized Manpower Training System (IMTS), Training and Technology (TAT), Arizona Job Colleges (AJC), Life Skills Education Model, Comprehensive Manpower Office (COMO), Vocational Exploration Groups (VEG), and Job-Related Education and Vestibule Training. Other case studies deal with procedures of: Job Agent classification, Cleff Job-Man Matching System, self-help work units, systems approach, telephone company training, Training Decision Paradigm, individualized instruction in education, behavioral assessment, behavioral training, and personalized salvage of failing trainess. Implications for policy and action of prime sponsors is explored in relation to manpower service delivery. An annotated bibliography of references for material cited is included; a nine-page appendix presents some research on work attitudes and work skills. (EA)
