Although engineers receive an outstanding technical education, their success in today's organization demands knowledge of how to put that education to work. The Management Survival Manual for Engineers provides this information, creating the bridge between the world of science and the working organization. The text discusses the management of technology within the organization, the management of the engineering department, and the management of engineering projects through technical approaches and personnel aspects.

The Management Survival Manual for Engineers introduces the engineer to basic management of engineering, encouraging essential leadership and managerial philosophies. The book acts as a primary resource for engineers moving into managerial areas as opposed to technological ones. It addresses a multitude of topics, enabling the reader to grasp general concepts before addressing more specific concepts.

Topics include:
Examining the inter-organizational behavior, procedures, and policies required to work in formal organizations.
Identifying the required knowledge of leadership
Outlining the principles for effective communication skills
Determining the responsibilities of the organization and engineering manager for preparing the new engineer entering the organization
Introducing how engineering functions in the organization
Forming a basic understanding for project management
Describing the transition from new engineer to supervisor

The Management Survival Manual for Engineers emphasizes an understanding of people, the organization, and management as opposed to technology - serving engineers entering the engineering field as well as those engineers moving into project management for the first time.
