Mobilizing Management Science Resources
AbstractAs you know, the objectives of The Institute of Management Sciences are to identify, unify, and extend scientific knowledge that contributes to the understanding and improvement of management practice. Any one of us, I am sure, would like to be able to look back and feel that during these formative years we had used our resources wisely and effectively to work toward an understanding of the management process. Any of us would hope that we had indeed added to the extension and unification of knowledge with the spirit if not the genius of Galileo, as he exemplified those qualities perhaps best of all in his last work, Dialogues on the Two New Sciences. But winning acceptance of truly significant scientific ideas is hardly less difficult in our own time than it was in his. And while we like to think that our enlightened modern contemporaries move in a smooth and continuous transition in adopting major scientific advances, our experience shows repeatedly that they do not.
