ABSTRACT
<p>Editor's note:</p><p>Many state-of-the-art designs, besides their technical challenges, require robust project execution to meet their target. This article presents the Intel Atom processor as an example to analyze&#x2014;from its management perspective&#x2014;the effectiveness of project execution, including organizational structure and geographical distribution, timely decision making, milestone definition, tracking progress, and fast recovery from surprises.</p><p align="right">&#x2014;Yervant Zorian, Virage Logic</p>
INDEX TERMS
