Silicon Valley (Santa Clara), USA
TEMSCON 2017 is the inaugural flagship conference of the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS) and will be an Annual Conference. This conference provides studies on the concepts, theories, and best practices in the field of technology management. For technology and engineering, this addresses the methodologies required to move technical ideas to market.
In today’s technology world, the engagement steps to move a stimulating technical concept into a marketable product has many challenges and requires a broad understanding of technical and business practices. This is true in an entrepreneurship environment, where a startup is creating a business as well in an intrapreneurship, where steps are within an existing company. IEE’s event addresses these areas including innovation, engineering management, marketing, manufacturing, supply chain, and people matters. Requirements and processes for new technologies are also studied including IT, Internet, IoT, Biotech, healthcare, and social media. Expected papers document research activities, case studies, and best practices. The conference is designed to be valued by the engineering, business, and management communities.
TEMSCON 2017 will include an Industry Forum session where senior Industry speakers from Intel, Facebook, Uber, etc. will present their visions, directions, and challenges in technology management in today’s modern companies. In addition, it will have educational programs for students and young professionals as well as an Editor’s Panel. The conference will take place in Silicon Valley, the center of high-tech innovation and development with industries spanning all areas of the world. It will begin with a panel of executives from four distinctly different companies in four different markets, but each creatively and effectively managing the fast-paced change in technology, market opportunity, and internal management. Each will provide a short description of how they view the issues in their markets and present a brief case study to illustrate the practices they employ to successful manage and lead, followed by a discussion with the audience.
