Have you worked for a great manager? What were the qualities that made him or her stand out from the rest? What are the most important qualities or skills for an engineering manager to posses? Come share your experience and tap into the collective wisdom that will be present.

We will use the Nominal Group Technique (NGT) to gather up the group’s experiences and ideas. NGT works faster than traditional brainstorming, yet generates more complete and higher quality results. Next we will identify the factors that have had the biggest impact using DOTS, a technique that efficiently harnesses the collective wisdom of the group, while avoiding groupthink.

This is really two workshops for the price of one. You will walk out with a better understanding of what makes engineering managers succeed, as well as how to use NGT and DOTS to tap into the wisdom and knowledge of a group.


Directed Networking (6:30 PM):

Learn whatâ??s going on in the valley and the current outlook.? Carl Angotti, facilitator
