Engineering Management: People and Projects
Battelle Press, 1995 - Business & Economics - 300 pages
Engineering Management is a guide for the first-level engineering manager/supervisor/leader and the "manager without authority" -- the project engineer/task leader/lead engineer. The book is practical and straightforward and is designed to help engineers deal with the realities of too little time, not enough resources, and little power.
