Knowledge Sharing in Industrialization Project Management Practices

Facing today’s complex and dynamic business environments, many organizations, especially those working in the new product development field, adopt a project-based approach to become more effective and flexible in managing change. Nevertheless, managing complex projects requires well identified, defined, yet customized practices. This becomes even more significant when the project managers are newcomer employees, so that they get rapidly acquainted with company’s specific practices. The case study research methodology was applied, by using direct observation and document analysis, to identify the industrialization project management practices at a plant of a first tear automotive industry supplier. Core processes of Product Engineering Process and Project Management, the main used tools, and activities performed by industrialization project managers were identified, systemized and compiled in a workbook, with the purpose of being a guide and a work tool for new industrialization project managers.
