These applications are not limited to employee selection and placement. Industrial psychology has also been applied to the improvement of merit rating, reduction of accidents, solution of visual problems, increasing the accuracy of inspection, improvements in training methods, and the measurement and improvement of employee morale. The growth of interest in psychological methods during the past decade within such organizations as the American Management Association shows that psychology as a technology has been accepted as a tool of industrial management. This book covers the procedures and techniques that have been responsible for that acceptance. These techniques can be improved, of course. They will be improved as further industrial application of psychology points the way toward desirable modifications. But just as they are now, the industries that have given them a trial have not been disappointed in them. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)"--Preface.
