    Cross border negotiation is the most important business skill it is possible to possess, according to the author. One of the key problems in negotiating across borders is that we often spare little thought for how our potential overseas partners might prefer these negotiations to progress. View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):14 - 15
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (202 KB)

    In engineering organisations where those who are promoted are often those who have shown the best engineering skills, the highly competent engineer is assumed to be able to pick up the necessary people management skills on the job. Unsurprisingly, this approach frequently causes problems. Highly specialist engineering people do not always recognise the needs of management or the needs of organisat... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):16 - 19
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1738 KB)

    Chief executives often say that maintenance is better managed preferably through outsourcing. This article examines some of the reasons why we think of craftsmen in the way we do, why rewards and recognition are often misread, and what impact outsourcing has on the views of the craftsmen that do the work.

    This article focuses on three essential ingredients that managers should consider carefully when implementing a learning programme for their team: developing the programme; selecting a training partner; and employing a wider range of learning. The traditional view of learning through attending carefully selected training courses needs to be supported by learning about and adapting to the ever-chan... View full abstract»

    Whatever country one lives in and works in as an employed engineer, there is almost certainly a law that relates to the way one should deal with confidential information that one has access to by reason of one's employment. The existing laws vary widely. In countries which apply a civil law procedure, there is probably a specific written law that applies. The title may include the words "unfair co...

  • Cutting back the risk: why stop at safety?

    If one is managing any sort of risk that is controlled by engineered systems, the failure of which could lead to harming of people, the environment, or the bottom line, it would be advisable to be aware of the methodologies and concepts contained in BS IEC 61511. This article looks at the safety lifecycle concept and offers some suggestions as to how this might be used by managers to improve their... View full abstract»

  • Insuring against a crisis

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):34 - 36
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (399 KB)

    To cope with the major commercial and reputational risk that defective products pose, businesses need to put product safety and wider quality at the centre of their risk management strategies. Simply relying on insurance is not an option. Recalls or rectification programmes are generally not covered and of course a poor claims record for safety or damage problems can lead to substantial premium ri... View full abstract»

    Work-based accidents are decreasing in engineering and manufacturing companies that have implemented lean techniques. This is the finding of the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS), a Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-funded "trouble-shooter" that has seen fewer accidents and improved levels of health and safety in companies with standardised operations.

    The success rate of new product development (NPD) investments is a vital concern for companies that depend on new products in order to keep pace with the market and stay ahead of their competitors. Such companies need to be able to justify re-investment in NPD. A poor NPD success rate not only affects current business performance, it also makes it harder to attract further investment. A strong NPD... View full abstract»
