    Date: May 15, 2018
    Time: 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    Without an engineering firm’s success as a business, the lofty goals of any engineer can dwindle to little more than reality-based frustrations. Today’s competitive marketplace demands that engineering firms plan and design their own future much in the same way that they design projects for their clients. Meaningful strategic business planning analyzes, addresses, and improves every aspect of a firm – for both the short and long-term. The tips and tricks that make planning work for an engineering firm…and the traps to avoid…revolve around the key elements – progressing from analysis to concept design to the details, all contributing to a high-impact strategic plan.
