For the progress of any organization, human resource is the most important resource, but it has to be dealt with in a different manner, than the other resources. Talented manpower brings success and profitability to the organization, and hence their requirements should be taken care of. This book has thirteen Chapters and three appendices. It discusses various aspects of this subject, esp. from the point of view of the utilization of statistical techniques in this field, for proper and objective analysis. It covers planning for manpower, manpower survey, expected manpower requirements, manpower accounting system and analysis, economy and employability, capital formation etc. Chapter 1 discusses about the training in, and application of Statistics, in the fields of Humanities and Social sciences. It gives details of various sub branches of Statistics, training course contents and programme of teaching its core courses etc. Details of a case study of movements of manpower in an organization are given in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 discusses the topic of manpower planning under two facades (a) input needs and (b) output potential, and then gives methodology. Chapter 4 talks about manpower accounting system (i.e. two way flow of man power from training organizations, to those employing this manpower), with the help of manpower accounting matrix, and the matrix equation of manpower. The models along with some examples for manpower requirements, considering wastage rate, are discussed in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 talks about the two-way grid system, for obtaining the expected man power position.
Chapter 7 discusses manpower accounting system in a mixed economy. It states five axioms, explains the intra-tier inter-activity frame, defines three coefficients and then gives mathematical analysis for the structural frame, with the set of five equations.
Continuing, it discusses manpower accounting system, gives definition of man power, man power accounting matrix, man power coefficients, matrix equation of man power, employment generation in mixed economy, and also takes note of the multiplier effect on employment. Chapter 8 talks about employment generation through output, and provides three definitions and two theorems, besides examples. Discussions in Chapter 9 are about ability of the economy, to employ more people. Chapter 10 deals with analysis of population and quantitative techniques for this purpose, economic aspects of manpower, matrix model etc. Chapter 11 discusses the aspects of manpower in the construction activity. Chapter 12 deals with the requirements of manpower in a voluntary sector, indicating the five main categories, their orientation and training, coordination and collaboration among them, augmentation of their proficiency, role and qualities of manpower in this sector. Chapter 13 provides the specific features of Japanese Capital formation in private sector, public sector, foreign trade, technological advancements etc. and finally the summary of these features and lessons from Japanese experience. This book discusses various aspects of this subject, and provides methodology of various techniques. It contains number of formulae, examples, models, theorems, definitions and references. It is useful for the managers, planners, and executives of HRD divisions and students of management.
