Intensive and focused basic research is the key to harnessing this chemistry, which in turn must lead to rapid implementation, and a total focus on the final commercial objective. Move on to other objectives as soon as the current target has been reached, as proven by successful commercialization. Use technology licensing as multiplier of profits, and encourage cooperative ventures and mergers to avoid debilitating battles with competitors. D. recruits coming to Bound Brook for site visits in the late 1970s would still receive an orientation folder that featured the Baekeland Award medal on the cover, and a synopsis of Baekeland’s achievements as the first page of the booklet.

Ch004 the Bound Brook site, uncovered innumerable articles throughout the 1930ies to the 1970ies describing scientific awards, product breakthroughs, production accomplishments, and licenses issued to other companies, but was essentially silent on profit targets, return on investments, and meeting of profit rather than production quotas. Concerted attempts to change the corporate culture away from that inherited from the Bakelite Company did not gain a footing until the 1980ies. Only then was it pointed out to employees that while “Furthering Chemistry in the Service of Humanity” was an admirable objective, it needed to be coupled with “service to the stockholders” if long-term survival of the business was to be one of the goals.
