6 12/1/2005 Page 6 Engineering & Technology Management Group Engineering Technology Management Tracking the Constant of Change Management History Society Legal Aspects LogisticsSupply Chain Systems Engineering Economics Risk Technical Information Multidiscipline Design Product Development Use of Acceleration Pools as a source of talent Acceleration pools provide proven and solid foundation for talent assessment Company size will indicate the number of pools needed Companies call these: Program management Development Programs Leadership Development Programs Etc…

7 12/1/2005 Page 7 Engineering & Technology Management Group Engineering Technology Management Tracking the Constant of Change Management History Society Legal Aspects LogisticsSupply Chain Systems Engineering Economics Risk Technical Information Multidiscipline Design Product Development Evolving Management and Leadership Characteristics Made all major decisions. Solved problems for the team; acted as the expert Controlled the workflow; was responsible for work group results Gave the answers; played the expert Laid down the rules Shared responsibility with team members. Helps team solve problems. Promotes self management and responsibility as well as ownership of the task or process Asks the right questions; allows direct reports to be the experts Articulates and rallies the troops around a vision and set of values

8 12/1/2005 Page 8 Engineering & Technology Management Group Engineering Technology Management Tracking the Constant of Change Management History Society Legal Aspects LogisticsSupply Chain Systems Engineering Economics Risk Technical Information Multidiscipline Design Product Development Evolving Management (continued) Valued Unanimity/conformity Sought to eliminate conflict Tended to be reactive; resist change Focused on tasks, products and technical Skills Uses linear and analytic thinking Values diverse perspectives Sees conflict as an opportunity for synergy and enriched decision making Is proactive; initiates change. Embraces change as necessary for survival Focuses on processes and people Uses nonlinear, holistic thinking ( systems).

9 12/1/2005 Page 9 Engineering & Technology Management Group Engineering Technology Management Tracking the Constant of Change Management History Society Legal Aspects LogisticsSupply Chain Systems Engineering Economics Risk Technical Information Multidiscipline Design Product Development Evolving Management (continued) Sought to achieve functional specialized expertise Was concerned about own area of responsibility Was fiercely competitive Was concerned only with domestic operations Thought of people as interchangeable resources Put organizations needs before peoples needs Seeks to achieve cross- functional and cross cultural expertise Is concerned about the total organization Is fiercely competitive but must partner with competitors, vendors Thinks on a larger scale Thinks of people as an organization's most valuable resource (hard to replace) Works a balance between organizations needs and peoples needs
