Job analysis and the curriculum with special reference to the training of printing executives
This volume by Professor Edward K. Strong, Jr., and Mr. Richard S. Uhrbrock makes one central and paramount contribution. It presents a successful method for an objective determination of the content of a technological and vocational curriculum. That this is a contribution of real significance will be doubted by few who in recent years have had to do with the vexing problem of the organization of such curricula. The present volume constitutes the first number of the Personnel Research Series, which has been created to facilitate the publication of the work of members of Personnel Research Federation, and of others contributing to the study of personnel problems. As such it is a pleasure to call attention to some of its special characteristics; the fact that it advances definite information in one field of personnel activity, the fact that it illustrates the development of a method and extends its use, the fact that it presents its procedure, methods and conclusions through the medium of a straight-forward and readable exposition, the fact that it will be welcomed with interest not only by the technicians in personnel research but by an important industrial group as well, and the fact that it is the result of a cooperative effort on the part of an academic and an industrial group. These are features which it is hoped will be maintained in subsequent numbers of the Series.
