Abstract
During the last fifty years as a serial entrepreneur and the last eight as a full Professor, I have witnessed and participated in a 180 degree evolution of the concept and the workings of the generally accepted term, ?engineering management?. From the late 1950s-1960s when it clearly meant that individuals who graduated from an engineering school would be hired by a corporation. There would be project managers, engineering managers, plant engineers, Engineering VPs and potentially a presidency or CEO position waiting for those who were bright, possessed good people skills, were disciplined and who were well managed team players, i.e. those who were easily manageable. I do not discuss gender or race in this paper and presentation, even though there were seismic shifts in those areas also.In each of the decades following from the 1970s to today, there were both subtle and world changing events that kept on moving the hand of the compass many degrees towards the complete opposite point. Due north has not only become due south, but in most respects including our engineering students and engineers the concept of ?engineering management? is now not only oxymoronic, it is basically irrelevant.
