The IPPMC and Case Materials

  • Louis J. Goodman


The IPPMC prototype curriculum was designed and developed by the PPIPM project team during the period 1975–1977 as part of an overall strategy to develop, test, and refine both the curriculum and supporting resource materials. A primary objective of the strategy was to design a curriculum that would view planning, design, and implementation as parts of a total process.1 In addition, the outstanding problems in project management training was believed to be a lack of innovative instructional programs that increase the capacity for both analytical thinking and practical implementation skills.2 Clearly, the PPIPM project team was committed to the task of closely examining the managerial role in projects.
