Transforming Leading Engineers into Engineering Leaders

“A critical issue for technology firms around the world is the competitiveness of their talented technical staff and leading innovators. As high performers are promoted within engineering and technical marketing roles, many require rounding out of their skill sets to function as both engineers and leaders.

The symptoms of “engineering without leadership” include organizational indecision about new products and services; disagreements between product management and engineering; delayed and halted projects; reduced R&D productivity; poor technology strategies, team morale and retention issues; and overall poor competitive performance.

Our programs for Professional Development in Engineering Leadership offer a unique combination of top-down technology strategy, bottom-up entrepreneurial techniques, business judgment, and skills – all focused on leadership for highly capable technical leaders."
