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.
