Abstract : As originally conceived the reported project placed primary emphasis on advancing knowledge about human needs in organizational settings. Subsequent developments led to placing more emphasis on theory and methods in organizational development.

Research about human need theory was also undertaken, playing a less dominant role than originally anticipated.
