5 Reasons Engineers Need to Develop Project Management Skills

LiquidPlanner

Here’s a lesson I’m thankful I learned early in my career: successful engineering projects rely more on non-technical skills than technical skills. One can’t design a building without knowledgeable, skilled structural, MEP, and fire engineers. An airplane isn’t safe unless there are skilled aeronautical engineers involved. You can’t rely on the quality of electricity unless there are smart electrical engineers involved.

The first thing you do to reduce risk.

The first thing you do to reduce risk. This is a concept from System Engineering (buffers, dampers, redundancy; but also loose tolerances; fuses; barriers and walls. anything that inhibits propagation of effects) This is a concept from scheduling (Critical Chain by Goldratt; Risk Managementis: loosen the coupling between sources of effects.

Estimating the Risk

Herding Cats

Risk is everywhere on projects. This risk comes from two types of uncertainty. The idea of risk and its management and handling is a critical success factor for all software development. One of the most rigorous theorems of economics [1] proves that the existing means of production yields greater economic performance only through greater uncertainty that is, through greater risk. Without these estimates, there is no risk management.
