Abstract : This paper reports results of research in three R and D labs. It indicates that response to economic and technical change can lead to contradictory signals in the R and D lab which decrease the satisfaction of R and D professionals and interferes with the effectiveness of their work. Some implications are drawn for the management of technical professionals. (Author)
