Knovel Adds Engineering Management & Leadership Subject Area 
Knovel's 31st Subject Area Addresses Much-Cited Skills Gap in
Engineering College Curricula, Provides Resources in Managing
Finances, Staff, Negotiations and More 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 --  Knovel, a leader in
providing a Web-based application that integrates technical
information with analytical and search tools, today announced its
newest subject area, Engineering Management & Leadership. The
offering addresses the needs of both new and experienced engineering
leaders, as well as managers of teams of engineers, scientists and
other technical staff. 
The new subject area focuses on the people-centric skills required of
emerging leaders, providing important guidance on the "soft skills"
necessary to win internal support for projects, make staffing and
hiring decisions, negotiate contracts and more. The content is
relevant to all engineers leading initiatives that require employees
to have skills for communication, team building, business planning
and staff development. 
"Engineers in management roles have responsibilities that include
coordinating the work of colleagues, contractors and consultants;
making persuasive presentations; generating reports and advocating
internally for their projects," said Meagan Cooke, Knovel's director
of content strategy and operations. "However, these are not skills
engineers are often taught in school. We've teamed up with a dozen
publishers, including a new partner, ASQ Quality Press, to help round
out the leadership skills for engineering managers."  
Knovel's Engineering Management & Leadership Subject Area covers a
wide range of information including: 


 
--  Entrepreneurship
--  Personnel Management
--  Leadership, Coaching and Mentoring
--  Presentation Skills
--  Negotiation
--  Business Finance and Accounting
--  Business Ethics
--  Decision Making and Business Analysis

  
Key publishers in the new subject area include AMACOM, American Society
for Quality (ASQ), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE),
Elsevier, Fairmont Press, The IET, Industrial Press, Information Age
Publishing Inc., Kogan Page Publishers, Management Concepts,
Measurement International, Oxford University Press, Project
Management Institute and Wiley. Material from CBS Press will be added
in the second quarter of 2013.
