The Management of Engineering: Human, Quality, Organizational, Legal, and Ethical Aspects of Professional Practiceby F Lawrence Bennett
Synopses & Reviews
This book covers a broad range of topics necessary for those managing engineering personnel, projects and organizations.
Book News Annotation:
A textbook for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course in engineering management, especially in departments that offer and require only a single course. All the material would probably take two quarters or semesters, but it is presented in modules that can be selected for a single term course. Describes the whole range of functions and skills required by someone managing engineering personnel, projects, or organizations. Also useful as a reference for practicing managers.
