This course offers engineers and technical staff who are making the transition to managerial and supervisory positions an excellent opportunity to understand the differences in mindset between technical and functional thinking. Such transitions are not always successful and many engineers end up leaving their posts or the company altogether because they cannot cope with the new job requirements. This course gives engineers and technical teams the opportunity to make a successful transition from their technical comfort zone to an area that is quite different on many fronts.
The course utilizes a number of assessments to give participants an opportunity to leverage their strong points and improve their weaknesses in order to ensure a successful transition to new functional and people responsibilities. The course also leverages open discussions around thorny issues to encourage analytical thinking and foster healthy communication. Participants will also get the chance to work in teams as they tackle multiple case studies and exercises revolving around project management and business problems.
Technical managers, supervisors and engineers who need to develop their managerial skills.
