Technical teams present many challenges for engineering managers. Team leaders must often give up some of their technical authority to focus on strategic management, operational planning and human resource management. They also need solid communications skills and know how to represent the team across the organization and at a high level. In this hands-on course, you will learn strategic and operational planning tools to set goals, establish objectives and build defensible budgets from an instructor who has actually “walked the talk” of this course with his own experiences.

People are often aware that their conversations are not achieving the results they want but do not have any specific tools to improve them.

Many management courses, including our own course: Managing Technical Teams, teach you how to deal with direct and indirect reports. To be successful, however, you also need to manage (or strongly influence) the behavior of those who are at your level or higher. But they may not understand your needs or may be indifferent to them. In this course, you will learn how to make yourself heard when you do not have direct authority, and how to change others’ behavior to make them reliable partners in your programs and projects.
