If you are looking for a lively, down-to-earth experience in the journey to innovative engineering management, this is definitely the book for you. The author's 20-plus year perspective indicates that, while most engineers will spend the majority of their careers as managers, most are dissatisfied with the transition. Much of this frustration is the result of lack of preparation and training. This book gives you a solid grounding in the critical attitudes and principles needed for success. The book teaches you how to internalize the attitudes and master the associated skills needed to excel in, and be satisfied with your transition to management. Learn how to communicate more effectively and improve relationships with your colleagues. Realize an improved use of your time, resulting primarily from learning and practicing a number of soft skills which flow from developing the necessary attitudes for management. Use your newly acquired skills to solve immediate problems. Then, apply the six fundamental principles in your on-going work with engineering teams, and management.
