In the view of Schumpeter, value creation comes from innovation. However, for manufacturing industry, most innovation comes from research and development (R&D) activities. And, of course, all R&D activities are conducted by R&D personnel. The focus of this thesis is on R&D personnel. Specifically, we examine five relevant issues on this regard. First, it identify the distribution of types of career orientation among R&D personnel. Second, it examines the relationships between career orientations. Third, it explores the relationships between career orientations, demographic variables and organization types. Fourth, it explores the relationships between career success, demographic variables and organization types. And lastly, it examines the relationships between career orientations and career success. The study documents many interesting findings: First, in term of distribution, Service and Lifestyle are the strongest orientations while Entrepreneurship, Geographic Security, and Technical Competence are the lowest orientations. Second, in term of gender difference, women are more Lifestyle and Job Security-oriented than men while men are more managerial-oriented. Third, in term of marriage status, unmarried R&D have higher scores in Lifestyle and Autonomy orientation, while the married have higher score in Service orientation. Fourth, in term of age, older personnel are more Service and Geographic Security-oriented and less Life-style and Autonomy-oriented. Fifth, in term of type of organization, the R&D personnel of ITRI (the Industrial Technology Research Institutes of Taiwan) are more Service-oriented than their counterparts in the Hsinchu Science Park. R&D personnel of ITRI have higher scores in Job Involvement and Intention to Stay than those of Science Park.
