*INDUSTRIAL EXECUTIVES

Broad investigation by the Carnegie foundation brought out the fact that in the rating of industrial executives who are college graduates more weight is given to personal qualities than to technical training. A circular letter was sent out in 1915 asking the question, “What are the most important factors in determining probable success or failure in engineering?” Answers received from 1500 engineers brought the following unexpected estimate of the qualities: Character

41.09% Judgment

17.5 Efficiency

14.5 Understanding men

14.0

87 Knowledge of fundamentals

7.0 Technique

6.0

139

100%

*These qualities: Character 41%, Judgment 1742%, Efficiency 1442%, Understanding of men 14%, are the inheritance of “The House of Israel."

SUCCESSFUL ENGINEERS

1st-Character, covering integrity, responsibility, resourcefulness and initiative.

2nd- Judgment, covering common sense, scientific attitude and perspective.

3rd-Efficiency, covering thoroughness, accuracy and industry.
4th-Understanding of men, including executive ability.
5th-Knowledge of the fundamentals of engineering science.

6th-Technique and practice of business. “This seems a commendable classification; but it is a classification which many continental educational authorities would not adopt, since they place theory first and last, and allow no time for other acquirements.” (From London Correspondent).
