The newest TAC formally updated its name after meeting at TEMSCON 2017 in Santa Clara, California. Its vision and scope is to serve as a forum to foster the understanding of issues and solutions, and encourage and promote improved methods and practices among project and delivery managers involved in managing engineering and technology. In particular, the TAC will cover all aspects of project and delivery management by initiating discussions, promoting educational content, and fostering partnerships and activities among industry practitioners and experts in building a global community. Goals of the TAC are three-fold:
- To promote and influence project and delivery management
- To motivate the development of educational products and training programs
- To engage a community of members in knowledge sharing via TEMS conferences and publications
Current members are already engaged in reviewing journal papers, participating as paper reviewers and track chairs at next year’s TEMSCON 2018, and generating articles for the IEEE Engineering Management Review Technology Manager’s Notebook. Vice-Chair Sarang Shaikh will be heading social media for the TAC this fall.
The TAC is accepting members to join and participate. A call for new members was recently sent out to all TEMS Chapter Chairs. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Jason Hui (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sarang Shaikh (email@example.com).
