The process of technology transfer is dependent on personal communication between individuals knowledgeable in new technology and who are willing to share this knowledge with others for the purpose of increasing the benefits to mankind. A modified version of a previously developed situational test for naval officers is used to determine the natural ability among Venezuelan students in the United States to transfer technical information and bring about its adoption. Emphasis is placed on locating and understanding these individuals to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of technology transfer efforts of Venezuelan agencies. Extensive analysis is performed on the results of questionnaires. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations for additional investigation are provided.
