This clear and detailed analysis, first published in 1976, of recruitment methods, staff development techniques, staff motivation, and organisational structures will be valuable to data processing managers and personnel officers alike. Its practical flavour and real understanding will also be welcomed by general management. The guidelines and detailed checklists will help cut the direct costs of recruiting and the often astonishingly high indirect costs of rapid staff turnover.
