ARLINGTON, Virginia, October 11, 2010
This past weekend, doctoral aspirants and program faculty met at the University of Management and Technology’s main campus to discuss aspects of doctoral research, including the importance of the literature review, the role of theory in scholarly research, operationalizing constructs, identifying variables and their relationship to each other, and organizing the research effort to address hypotheses.
Among the faculty on hand were Drs. Rudy Watson, Robert Voetsch, Bob McGrath, and UMT Academic Dean, J. Davidson Frame, who commented, “Despite operating in a virtual academic environment, where students and faculty are geographically scattered, UMT is still able to create a community of scholars. In addition to increasing interaction between faculty and students, these colloquia provide an opportunity for participants to express their ideas and concerns about conducting research, strengthen their methodological capabilities, and share project ideas.”
UMT President, Dr. Yanping Chen, along with fellow Project Management Institute Board of Directors member and former Chair, Phillip Diab, also took time out from PMI’s annual North American Congress to participate.
