Abstract

Management of Technology (MOT) graduate level educational programs have been in existence for over twenty-five years; however, in spite of their success, the continued growth and identity of MOT as a unique academic discipline are being threatened by the lack of standardization in program curricula. Recognizing this, the International Association for Management of Technology (IAMOT) has launched a major initiative to define a body of knowledge (BoK) to be utilized in the accreditation of MOT educational programs. This effort has led to the publication of A Template for Graduate Programs in Management of Technology, an open debate of its content, and the proposal of various enhancements leading towards its potential utilization as a tool in the evaluation of MOT educational programs. Our research utilized a two-step, web-based, request-for-information process for the purpose of obtaining direct input from MOT stakeholders to the validation of the Template and the composition and ranking of importance to MOT education of Knowledge Groups and Knowledge Disciplines being incorporated to a Template-based, MOT BoK Framework model. The resulting model, when compared to the results of an analysis of 148 graduate programs in Engineering and Technology Management, identifies significant differences between the expressed interests of MOT stakeholders and the content emphasis of many of the existing programs. The enhanced, stakeholder-driven, model recognizes the unique characteristics of the MOT discipline.
