More info: The typical scientist, engineer or technologist brings the following skills to managerial duties:

  • Exceptional problem solving skills

  • Exceptional self-improvement skills

  • Exceptional system modeling skills

The typical manager has to be able to:

  • Understand his or her business environment

  • Build key relationship networks

  • Build successful teams

  • Exploit business opportunities and problems (yes, both)

This seminar will help you make this transition successfully. The

participants will receive a training manual. This seminar is offered through Washington Academy of Sciences, of which IEEE Northern Virginia and Washington Sections are affiliates.
