Video: Business management for decision makers
What do engineering managers need to create effective strategic plans? Watch this video to learn more.
Missions. Visions. Strategies. Goals and actions. All are key components of strategic plans. And when well-crafted, they serve as a roadmap toward a compelling future. Yet it all adds up to a big fat zero when the team charged with creating that plan and carrying it out doesn’t trust one another, won’t work together, makes ungrounded assessments, solves the wrong problems, and makes unsound decisions.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
