PROGRAM SUMMARY

Through pedagogy, we have proposed a method to transform the existing engineering mindset into engineering leadership. A summary of the skill transformation is as follows: 

  • Better judgment on what technology development shall manifest into business opportunity.
  • Refined communication skills to influence an organization and people.
  • Increased leadership ability to develop high team performance.
  • Operational and financial skills needed to execute decisions effectively.

Though a systemic project-oriented process, the overall result is professional development of the engineering leader as well as creation of a library of engineering leadership insights that can be shared with a global community.
