The changing nature of work : implications for occupational analysis by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores the increasing demographic diversity of the workforce, the fluidity of boundaries between lines of work, the interdependent choices for how work is structured - and ultimately, the need for an integrated systematic approach to understanding how work is changing. The book offers a rich array of data and highlighted examples on markets, technology, and many other external conditions affecting the nature of work; research findings on American workers and how they feel about work; downsizing and the trend toward flatter organizational hierarchies; and autonomy, complexity, and other aspects of work structure."--Jacket

This book presents a look at methods of performance enhancement, examining basic issues of performance through a series of papers which evaluate several popular self-improvement approaches by weighing the evidence to determine what works. The first of the book's four parts provides an overview of the volume with two chapters describing the history of the project and key findings. The second section, "Training," contains three chapters: "Optimizing Long-Term Retention and Transfer, ""Modeling Expertise," and "Developing Careers." The third section, "Altering Mental States," contains the following five chapters: "Subliminal Self-Help, ""Meditation, ""Managing Pain, ""Hiding and Detecting Deception," and "a Broad Concept of Deception." The final section, "Performing," contains two chapters entitled "Optimizing Individual Performance," and "Enhancing Team Performance." Two appendixes contain a description of committee activities and biographical sketches of committee members. Each chapter includes extensive notes and references. (Jb)

Learning, remembering, believing : enhancing human performance by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the third report of the Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance. Based on hundreds of research studies of learning and human performance as reported in the literature, the book consists of 11 chapters organized in five parts. The two chapters of the first part provide the background and summary of the committee's study. The first chapter describes the topics undertaken in this third phase of the study and the relationships between these topics and earlier work done by the committee. Chapter 2 summarizes key findings and conclusions for each chapter. The second part of the book considers a number of issues related to individual training. Chapter 3 focuses on the extent to which training should be provided in a situation similar to which performance occurs; chapter 4 addresses the illusions of comprehension that occur when people do not understand the reasons for the "right" answers to problems. The three chapters of part 3 consider learning and performing in teams. In chapter 5, research on cooperative learning, especially for adults, is reviewed. Chapters 6 and 7 focus on team performance and team training. In the fourth part, the implications of a person's emotional state for performance are discussed. In chapter 8, studies on achievement motivation, career development, health and exercise behavior, anxiety disorders, and sport and motor performance are discussed, with a concentration on perceptions of self-confidence. The following chapter focuses primarily on hypnosis, with side studies on restricted environmental stimulation and meditation and sleep learning. The last part of the book presents findings from two relatively new fields in the area of human performance. Chapter 10 considers socially induced affect, and thought suppression is the topic of the final chapter. Contains 1,190 references. (Kc)
Enhancing human performance : issues, theories, and techniques by Daniel Druckman( )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the requests of the U.S. Army Research Institute, the National Research Council formed a committee to assess the field of techniques that are claimed to enhance human performance. The Institute asked the Council to evaluate the claims made by proponents of selected existing techniques and to address two general additional questions: (1) What are the appropriate criteria for evaluating claims for such techniques in the future? (2) What research is needed to advance our understanding of performance enhancement in areas related to the proposed techniques? The objectives of the committee's study are to provide aan authoritative assessment of these questions for policy makers in research and development who are consumers of the techniques, as well as to consider their possible applications to Army training. Contents: Psychological Techniques -- Learning, Improving Motor Skills, Altering Mental States, Stress Management, Social Processes; Parapsychological Techniques -- Paranormal Phenomena. (SDW)
