I earned my PD H in Software Engineering at Cargnegie Mellon University. At his time, PH.D proposal must be a topic that beyond innovative it must started a field to others for researching and debate. After that I was lecturer in other Universities were I help people to create the PH D work. So, what I saw is the requirements depends on each University while the core is usually searched by most of them. With that said, which is the major for your Ph D.? Which are the main requisites for the Unversity to accept your doctoral tessis?
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing
Have you thought about the theme: "The impact of technology and artificial intelligence on project management"
One idea would be to come up with some innovative project management methods or a model for dealing with chaotic (i.e. not complicated or complex) contexts.
PM and AI
Badr, since the research and writing of a dissertation requires so much work, it needs to be not only interesting/innovative in the relevant space, but also something about which you are passionate; for which you have access to advisors/resources who are aligned and supportive; a logical continuation of who you are and what you've done to date; a path to who you want to be in the next phase of your professional work, etc.
I submit that you would be wise to reflect on all that, together with "local" advisors, likely who already know you well and with whom you can explore all that in context.
I am pleased to read your wise feedbacks, and happy to see that my question triggered this level of interest, I will give my feedback for all the answers one by one and I hope this discussion will bring a benefit for all of us. Thank you again.
Thank you for your Feedback.
I agree with you feedback, the proposal needs to cover the topic, the professor requirement, the university philosophy and the personal ambition.
I think that for the moment, the objective is to bring something new. Actually, the project/service management fields are focusing more on methods, techniques, organizational aspects, but we don't cover enough the human aspect of the project management which is for me the most important one and the most difficult to manage.
As suggested by some colleagues, we can add topics like innovation, IA, .... I think these kine of subjects are not deeply covered and we don't have a practical and scalable framework.
Thank you again for you feedback
I think it could be an interesting topic if we mix this effect and how organizations, projects and people are impacted. Interesting suggestion.
I really think that chaotic context will be one of the issues to manage seriously by organization but also project teams. This chaotic context is going to be more visible and present in the coming period due to economic, political, trade, technological and human / customer behavior changes.
I will start by looking for what is written for the moment and what are the big issues faced. this could be a good starting.
