RTM - The Management of Research When Research-Technology Management was Born

The  first  issue  of RTM, then Research Management, featured case histories of research from National  Cash  Register,  Westinghouse  Electric  and Atlas Powder. Subsequent 1958 issues carried reports from General Electric, General Motors, Corning Glass, Goodyear  Tire  and  Rubber,  Hercules  Powder,  RCA, American Cyanamid, Esso Standard Oil, Esso Research and  Engineering—and  the  first  Presidential  science adviser, James R. Killian. From a time when Sputnik and Univac  captured  the  science  headlines,  they  provide insights into the management of scientists and engineers that remain surprisingly relevant today.
