Small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) are a part of the industrial economies and faster completion of projects continues to be an important problem in project management in SMEs. As global competitive pressure increases and product life cycles compress, companies are trying to shorten product development cycles by communication and coordination. On the other hand, E-collaboration and collaborative systems bring geographically dispersed teams together, supporting communication, coordination and cooperation. This paper presents a review of research in the area of new product development by E-collaboration through project management approach in SMEs. By investigation in previous literature, we reviewed and present an operational definition of the term project management, and a historical review of the development of E-collaboration. That is followed by an introductory SMEs and new product.
