The IEEE Engineering Management Society is

bringing training in technical management skills and best practices
for project management, effective communication and virtual team

a series of web based courses for IEEE members involved in technical
Transitioning from Technical Contributor to
EMS is sponsoring professional business
management courses that deliver real-time access to critical skills
and information for the technology manager. This is a
cross-functional effort across all IEEE societies intended to assist
fellow engineers in making the adaptive and challenging transition
into a new area of professional responsibility. Most of us have lots
of technical training but little exposure to the "soft"
skills we need to deal with people issues and leading and motivating
teams. Most managers recall some terrifying experiences in
transitioning into management responsibilities; we want to take
proactive steps to prevent such experiences.
