Designing Organizations for Integrating Technology Exchange Transactions (TETs) in Developing Countries.
Rubenstein, Albert H.
Outlined is an approach to designing programs and institutions for the whole range of TETs (Technology Exchange Transactions) to serve particular developing nations, economic sectors, technical fields, or geographic regions. Personal factors such as needs, capabilities, and attitudes of the user, as well as formal economic and organizational factors, influence the design approach. The design model for TETs contains three elements: (1) design features--what can we manipulate? (2) design criteria--what do we want to accomplish? and (3) design parameters--what must we accept as given? This approach is intended to have a major impact on the survival of a TET program as well as on its usefulness to countries and individuals. (Author/STS)
