Engineering “All-Star” Candidates
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” Walt Disney
I recently watched a documentary about Walt Disney and how he started his animation business that ultimately grew into the entertainment powerhouse that we know today. Not only was Walt Disney a dreamer but also a doer. Many persons have great ideas but few individuals can take that dream or idea and turn it into reality. Walt Disney is one of those few.
This leads to the two engineering “All-Stars” that we’re representing this week. The first is an engineering management “All-Star” who started his career by doing the engineering design work. Over time, he grew progressively into lead engineering, supervisory and now engineering management capacities where he’s learned to “do” the project and team management tasks as engineering manager.
The second engineering “All-Star” has been “doing” the engineering work where’s he’s become a subject matter expert in design, simulation, and analysis. He’s been promoted 4 times with his current employer since starting as an FEA engineer to his current role as Principal Engineer today. His “doing” has been focused on learning how to apply finite element analysis principles to help clients make better design decisions for cost and weight.
Both engineers are now starting to explore new engineering career opportunities where they can apply their leadership and technical expertise as “doers” with new manufacturing organizations.
I’d love to discuss with you in more detail how each of these engineering “All-Stars” can help your engineering groups “do” more with your product development initiatives.
Please call 312.226.4916 or email [email protected] to schedule a time to discuss how these engineering “All-Stars” could make an impact on your engineering team.
