From the Back Cover:

AN UPDATED REVISION OF THE BESTSELLING LEADERSHIP BOOK FOR ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY MANAGERS

Knowledge of modern technology management concepts and best practices provides the foundation for effective job performance in technology-driven business environments. Management of Technology discusses cutting-edge management concepts, tools, and techniques that effectively work in today's technology-intensive organizations.

New management tools and techniques play an increasingly important role in every organization for creating quality products, services, and content faster, cheaper, and at a higher quality. Technology crosses virtually all levels and all disciplines of an enterprise. Therefore, the principles of managing technology are relevant not only to people in the traditional engineering-scientific community, but also apply to any organization and business that must effectively deal with the application, integration, and transfer of technology. Financial institutions, government agencies, architectural firms, and healthcare providers are just a few examples of the vast array of organizations that must function effectively in technology-based environments, and therefore be able to manage technology. Specifically, this book features:

  • Methods for assessing the effectiveness and performance of the organization and its management processes
  • Insight into the functioning of contemporary work processes, such as concurrent engineering, design-build, integrated product development, and phase-gate processes
  • Special tools and techniques for effectively managing technology-based projects, including dealing with organizational interfaces from R&D to markets
  • Discussion of real-world field studies, cases, and best practices
  • Emphasis on people issues, such as leadership, teamwork, communications, and commitment, throughout the book

Management of Technology is a complete reference book, invaluable for managers and professionals in technology-intensive business environments.
