Entrepreneurial times call for The Entrepreneurial Engineer

In an age when technology and business are merging as never before, today's engineers need skills matched with the times. Today, career success as an engineer is determined as much by an ability to communicate with coworkers, sell ideas, and manage time as by talent at manipulating a Laplace transform, coding a Java(r) object, or analyzing a statically indeterminate structure.

This book covers those nontechnical skills needed by today's entrepreneurial engineers who mix strong technical know-how, business and organizational prowess, and an alert eye for opportunity. Author David Goldberg unlocks the keys to ten core competencies at the heart of what entrepreneurial engineers need to master to be effective in a fast-moving world of deals, teams, startups, and innovating corporations. You'll discover how to:Feel the essence-and the joys-of engineeringExamine personal motivation and set goalsMaster time management and organizationWrite fast and well under pressurePrepare and deliver effective presentationsUnderstand and practice good human relationsAct ethically in matters large, small, and engineeringAssess technology opportunitiesUnderstand teams, leadership, culture, and the organization of organizations
