HOW TO FIND TIME TO THINK
MOST EXECUTIVES recognize the crucial, long-range problems that will affect the future growth of their companies. They know how to handle them, too. Their knottiest problem is to find the time to tackle them after grappling with a daily host of routine problems.
AN IBM MANAGEMENT OPERATING SYSTEM (MOS) can help you find the time. With this new management tool, you can program an IBM computer to collect and analyze business information and to initiate action on predictable questions involving inventory, reordering, shipping, production scheduling. The system will automatically print out exception reports when executive action is required.
I love that they put their logo inside a punch card.
A “Giant Brain” that’s Strictly Business
IBM’s new 702 Electronic Data Processing Machine brings to the accounting and record-keeping problems of business the speed and capacity of giant scientific computers.
This IBM physicist is working to reduce the cost of data processing even more – before some other company does.
Back in 1950, the cost of processing 35 thousand computer instructions was one dollar. Today, one dollar processes 35 million instructions.
What has driven the cost down? The work being done by IBM’s Dr. Sol Triebwasser and his associates may give us a clue.
Associates… and your growth as an engineer
Do your associates stimulate your thinking? Are your managers receptive to your original ideas? At IBM, an engineer can answer these basic questions with an unqualified “yes.”
In IBM’s modern labs, engineers sense the professional excitement that stems from a continual interchange of original ideas. Their contributions—even on projects not specifically their own—receive sympathetic hearing from men whose management positions were attained by outstanding engineering achievement.
MAGIC NUMBERS: For years, in the brooding manor house overlooking a little Scotch village, John Napier worked in mysterious seclusion. Some of his 16th century neighbors even suggested that he was dabbling in witchcraft. But there was no black magic about the ivory calculating “Bones” he invented to help merchants figure their accounts.
FOR THE MATHEMATICIAN who’s ahead of his time
IBM is looking for a special kind of mathematician, and will pay especially well for his abilities.
This man is a pioneer, an educatorâ€”with a major or graduate degree in Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering with Applied Mathematics equivalent.
You may be the man.
