Time-based management of technology: A taxonomic integration of tactical and strategic roles
For corporations competing in a global marketplace, time-based management of their technology is becoming a significant resource. However, the concept of time in management of technology-driven industrial organizations is not new. Classical management theorists like Frederick Taylor and others used time-based management in "scientific" management of operations or for planning, organizing, scheduling, and controlling. However, due to opening of international barriers, fast changing technologies, and rapidly shrinking product life cycles, time-based management is acquiring an increasing significance in its tactical and strategic roles. Develops a comprehensive taxonomy of time-based management based on its three dimensions: form, origin and application. Discusses trade-offs and linking of time-based management with other strategic criteria, such as quality, performance, and delivery. Outlines six specific ideas for implementation of agility-based strategy. Discusses some managerial implications for optimal utilization of time-based management.
