Professional Affairs: Research Workers: Produce or Perish

D. L. Bosman


To produce research results or perish is today a continual threat to the research worker who in the boom days of the past was only sometimes subjected to the threat of publish or perish. Research management must become more effective to ensure higher productivity and continued funding. We live in an age of change, and successful technological innovation is essential for survival. The selection, motivation, and continuing education of people can contribute much to successful R & D. The systems approach and the use of industrial economics and engineering concepts can contribute to optimum utilization of research workers and facilities.
