The Experimental Manpower Laboratory as an R & D Capability. Final Report.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Div. of Behavioral Sciences.
The report provides an assessment of the six Experimental Manpower Laboratories set up by the Manpower Administration to engage in long-term research concerned with developing improved manpower service-delivery systems. An advisory committee under the auspices of the National Research Council was established to conduct the assessment. The six laboratories studied were: (1) Colorado State University Experimental Manpower Laboratory, Denver, Colorado (disadvantaged individuals); (2) Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections, Draper Correctional Center, Elmore, Alabama (correctional rehabilitation); (3) University of Michigan Experimental Manpower Laboratory, Ann Arbor, Michigan (disadvantaged individuals); (4) Mobilization for Youth Experimental Manpower Laboratory, New York, New York (hard-to-employ youths); (5) North Carolina Manpower Development Corporation, Chapel Hill, North Carolina (improving State capabilities for planning/delivery manpower services); and (6) Training and Technology, Oak Ridge, Tennessee (upgrading skills in an industrial setting). The advisory committee found the concept of manpower laboratories valid and useful and has presented recommendations to assist in the planning and organizing of more effective laboratories in the future. Findings and recommendations are categorized according to: (1) planning for laboratory effectiveness, (2) requirements for effective management, and (3) utilization. The document's three main sections focus on descriptive background, program assessment, and laboratory operations. (EA)
