Abstract:

The concept that a model of the methodology of technology transfer and utilization has two major subdivisions, formal vs informal communications, is discussed briefly. Some literature support for the informal communications aspect of the model of the methodology of technology transfer and utilization are presented. An in depth analysis is made of one of the informal elements of the model, linker-stabilizer behavior. The analysis is based on two studies of technically trained personnel one, Naval Officers, and the Second, Government Service Employees. The thrust of the analysis and the conclusion seem to indicate strongly that the commonality of the technical training is more dominant than the decision to be a Naval Officer or a Government Service Employee. This conclusion thus supports the belief that the distribution of linker-stabilizer behavior characteristics has a general base in terms of technically trained personnel and is not unique to a select population.
