Home arrow Engineering arrow Engineering and Technology Talent for Innovation and Knowledge-Based Economies: Competencies, Leadership, and a Roadmap for Implementation



The chapter provided a panoramic overview of leadership attributes, models, and recent emergences in engineering leadership. Several institutions have been progressively embracing engineering leadership development whether implicitly or through explicit programs. Specific details on the relationship between team-based complex engineering design and leadership development have been provided.
