This month, Engineered Systems is highlighting its annual engineering team award, so I thought I’d highlight the need to build teamwork. The best place to start building teamwork is right within your own company. If the firm has several regional offices, it just makes the teambuilding that much more challenging.
On the agenda were a total of nine technical, engineering sessions. Equipment vendors presented a few of these sessions, while the employees presented the majority of sessions. Each class was worth one college education unit (CEU). The sessions addressed design issues and gave employees the opportunity to practice their presentation skills among their peers. The classes were also videotaped so that others could see the presentation later, since there were up to three sessions going on at one time. It also offers the presenter the opportunity to critique his or her own presentation skills.
