  • NS 1251 – Product Management Process Training (an eight-day course for AT&T Network Systems and Network Systems International Product Managers). This project was one of many performance-based training products built after the conduct of the CAD project in 1986. This keystone course was preceded, in the Curriculum Path, by a multitude of short T&D Modules to bring the learners up to a common point. NS 1251 then engaged the 20 learners in a systematic buildup of their knowledge and skills in team leading/team building, business case and business plan development, financial planning and analysis, time management, risk analysis and management, and group process decision-making. The NS 1251 simulation exercise, the heart of the eight-day course, took five days for lectures and exercises and focused on the five phases of the product life cycle.
