Most engineers go throughout their careers with their heads down, seldom looking at the horizon or even peering over the fence. Their immediate objectives are to perform the tasks at hand, regardless of the situations that they face or the environments in which they labor. While this is noble and most managers could never find fault with this attitude for the short term, the great majority of engineers have well above average intelligence and are capable of much more than what they are currently doing.
The course is divided into two separate parts, each of which is intended to improve the capabilities of an engineer in the overall business community. The first part describes the steps necessary to become a top quality leader, and discusses the principles, strategies, and education necessary to be considered for a higher leadership role. The second part of this course deals with the actual fundamentals of managing, whether it's a small team or a department, or even a large organization. The course describes in detail the ways that an individual might be considered for a more important position, and how an engineer should take advantage of training and experience opportunities that become available, while maintaining a conscientious effort toward self-improvement.
