    NIKOLA Tesla was born in 1856 in what is now Croatia to Serbian parents Milutin and Djuka Tesla. His father was a priest, an intellectual who prodded his son to develop unusual mental discipline. His mother was an inventor of many time-saving devices used for domestic tasks. Despite his early success at school and obvious interest in experimenting with mechanical devices, Tesla's father was determ... View full abstract»

    I don't remember when it happened to me the first time, nor do I remember where exactly happened, but it was in some American city. I came to attend an IEEE meeting and checked in into a very nice hotel. The room was nice and pleasant, with all the expected amenities. On one side was a comfortable desk with a phone and the needed connection for my laptop computer. View full abstract»

    The presidential race placed logical fallacies, causality abuse and fact-deficient allegations on full-frontal exhibit. Less obvious is that science fiction often has more impact on policy development than science. It is important that logic centered professions and their organizing bodies help our government develop policies based on logic, data and critical thinking and that science, not science...

  • Managing technical professionals: Speaking freely

    Providing an atmosphere, to our employees to speak freely, is an important job of the manager and leader of an organization. Though this sounds obvious, and most of us might think that we are open to feedback and that our employees come to us and tell us things, it is highly likely that there are at least a few people in the organization who will not question decisions and make suggestions for a v...

  • Taking the lead and managing innovation

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):13 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (43 KB)

    The literature on leadership is extensive and continues as a recurrent theme in most academic and business management journals. Some attempt to replace 'manager' with 'eader' while others fail to consider what it means to take a leadership position. At times leadership is transformed into the act of proposing the "big idea" and delegating, to others, the responsibility to execute. View full abstract»

    This is the third in a series of articles about tools for management of projects. In the first one I promised to discuss software tools. I will do that, but not in this article. The second one covered some very basic tools, which are frequently used by project managers. Here we will cover a few more of the tools listed in the initial article. These are also very commonly used tools, but not always... View full abstract»

    The most important of the top ten lessons for managers is to communicate effectively. In this article, I'll focus again on one of the top ten lessons derived from some of the most downloaded articles from the IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, lessons from Balachandra and Friar (1997), Cooper (1983), Grant and Pennypacker (2006), Pinto and Dennis (1987), and Pinto and Samuel (1990), as w...

    There is a lot of reading material describing the differences between a leader and a manager. In general, one can differentiate them in terms of their relationships towards their peers-that is whether people follow you or whether they just work for you. It goes without saying that both qualities are required to be successful; however, most university courses only focus on the latter. Engineering g... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (358 KB)

    Over the last two decades, frugal innovations have garnered the attention ofmanagement scholars due to their high economic potential and rapidly growing adoption in businesses (George et al., 2012; Nakata & Weidner, 2012; Zeschky et al., 2011). This concept of frugal innovation has come a long way from the initial focus on Bottomof the pyramid (BOP) customers in emerging markets to being explored ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1459 KB)

    All science and engineering involves abstraction of the complexity of the world into approaches and models that use simplifying assumptions, which allow generalization from one complex situation to another. The best engineering methods take advantage of the simplicity in the models without diverging so far from reality that behavior can no longer be predicted and controlled, if possible. As a syst...
