Devon & Cornwall group's survey clearly demonstrates the changing needs of its members

A questionnaire survey undertaken by the Devon and Cornwall Group demonstrates how the needs of Institute members have changed. Long gone is the interest in traditional work study techniques. In its place members want to know more about leading edge and modern management techniques whick bring their organisation success.

From a total of 68 survey forms sent out, 24 (35 percent) were returned, which is well above the expected level of return for such surveys. The group committee were extremely pleased with the feedback and the trends of modern requirements. Members were asked to indicate whether their interest was high, medium or low against a list of professional interests. Managing change was by far the most popular interest, whereas production control was of least interest

In order to rank interest levels, the number of votes for high have been multiplied by three, medium by two and low by one to arrive at a total number of points for each interest.
