Included among the project's activities were the computerized analysis of data from 197 responses to a project-developed survey instrument; a review of literature on the above-mentioned topics; development of a 33-page annotated bibliography (included in the final project report); synthesis of data from the survey and the literature review in papers on mid-career women as mentors and career patterns and gender in mid-career in the report) covering managerial roles and functions, formal and interpersonal communication, decision making, time management, and management by objectives.
