Paper Abstract

An overview of program management, focussed on actions to improve the management process, is based on a hierarchy of management roles. The life cycle of a technology program is directed to defining the activities and controls relevant to specific R&D phases. Methods for improving personnel selection are suggested, and the issues peculiar to management in government are identified. An assessment of planning performance is given along with a survey of technology forecasting methods available as aids to planning. A summary identifies specific needs for management improvement in the above areas.
