Project and Program Administration

TMP 432

Project Management in New Product Development has become an expected professional skill for managers and specialists in most technical disciplines. The use of project management is expanding wherever organizations need to achieve performance objectives in the face of global competition, extreme time pressures, and rapidly changing technologies. This course is intended to provide a solid grounding in traditional and modern project and program management with an emphasis on applying the principles to New Product Development teams in Technology-Driven businesses. We will take a methodology-agnostic view, preferring instead to survey a number of available tools and techniques and emphasize that these may or may not be useful for all projects. Although not a conventional course in Project Management, many of the traditional methods will be discussed as a foundation for further study and practice.
