Engineering Business Success Book Review:

Herb Johnson believes that we are meant to live abundantly. We are designed to live the good life, with the freedom and creativity to follow our passions. What will defeat us is an attitude of impoverishment—the belief that we are undeserving, so why should we try. In Engineering Business Success, Johnson explores the structure of success. Many books overflow with detail about business systems—important, yes, but they don’t reveal the big picture of what it takes to succeed. What fundamentally must be in place to open and effectively operate a successful business? As an engineer and as a businessperson, Johnson has written an important resource for both. But his book is for anyone who wants to make something of himself or herself, because the themes here are central to winning. Business opportunities abound in our society, and Johnson shows you what you should be looking for, and what needs to be in place if you are to win. So many businesses fail right out of the gate, and Johnson has the antidote so that it won’t happen to you. Foremost, he says, you need to seize the responsibility to serve— to serve your industry, your clients, and your stakeholders. That is the underpinning of success. In Engineering Business Success, Herb Johnson shares what he has learned in his 28 years at the helm of the thriving company that he founded. And he shares what he has learned in life, since his boyhood rural upbringing, through his years as a young engineer, and as he has worked to make the most of his business. Johnson’s story demonstrates the trajectory of following one’s passion—and doing so with the spirit of service and with the business savvy that he has learned along the way. “Herb embraces an attitude of abundance, a dedication to discipline, and commitment for lifetime learning, all of which pour forth from this story of his entrepreneurial journey. Business owners, and those wishing to experience the freedoms Herb has enjoyed, will get a dose of enthusiasm and pick up some helpful hints from reading this book.” —VERNE HARNISH, FOUNDER, ENTREPRENEURS’ ORGANIZATION AND GAZELLES AUTHOR OF SCALING UP AND MASTERING THE ROCKEFELLER HABITS

The Engineering-Business Nexus Book Review:

Fascinating and compelling in equal measure this volume presents a critical examination of the multilayered relationships between engineering and business. In so doing the study also stimulates ethical reflection on how these relationships either enhance or inhibit strategies to address vital issues of our time. In the context of geopolitical, economic, and environmental tendencies the authors explore the world that we should want to create and the role of the engineer and the business manager in this endeavor. Throughout this volume the authors identify periods of alignment and periods of tension between engineering and business. They look at focal points of the engineering-business nexus related to the development of capitalism. The book explores past and present movements to reshape, reform, or reject this nexus. The volume is informed by questions of importance for industry as well as for higher education. These are: What kinds of conflict arise for engineers in their attempts to straddle both professional and organizational commitments? How should professionals be managed to avoid a clash of managerial and professional cultures? How do engineers create value in firms and corporations? What kinds of tension exist between higher education and industry? What challenges does the neoliberal entrepreneurial university pose for management, faculty, students, society, and industry? Should engineering graduates be ready for work, and can they possibly be? What kinds of business issues are reflected in engineering education curricula, and for what purpose? Is there a limit to the degree of business hybridization in engineering degree programs, and if so, what would be the criterion for its definition? Is there a place in engineering education curricula for reflective critique of assumptions related to business and economic thinking? One ideal of management and control comes to the fore as the Anthropocene - the world transformed into an engineered artefact which includes human existence. The volume raises the question as to how engineering and business together should be considered, given the fact that the current engineering-business nexus remains embedded within an economic model of continual growth. By addressing macro-level issues such as energy policy, sustainable development, globalization, and social justice this study will both help create awareness and stimulate development of self-knowledge among practitioners, educators, and students thereby ultimately addressing the need for better informed citizens to safeguard planet Earth as a human life supporting system.

Men as Managers, Managers as Men Book Review:

Most managers in most organizations in most countries are men. This book is the first international work to address the relationships between men, masculinities and managements. It examines the processes through which gendered managerial structures, cultures and practices are reproduced. Exploring top and middle managers, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and public and private sector managers, the book breaks new ground by critically examining the gendered power processes that have largely been assumed and ignored by conventional organizational and management theory. As well as providing new insights into how managements and masculinities may reinforce each other, this challenging book ultimately explores the ways in which both management and men might be changed, even transformed.

Engineering Corporate Success Book Review:

From growing up on the banks of the Ohio River during the Great Depression to acquiring executive management roles at large international companies, James Hardymon's life has been full of twists, turns, hard work, and achievement. During his career, Hardymon helped build corporations as a CEO, learned the ropes of Wall Street, and interacted with US presidents and congressional leaders. As a result, he acquired a keen, first-hand understanding of corporate America, which propelled his reputation as a well-respected leader. Engineering Corporate Success traces Hardymon's personal story and career trajectory -- including his childhood, college years at the University of Kentucky, service in the US Army, and his time employed in some of the highest-level executive positions in America. Based on a series of interviews conducted by Terry L. Birdwhistell for the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, the book reveals Hardymon's maxims for success, experiences of rising through the corporate ranks, and key insights into how business decisions are made in an increasingly international environment. Hardymon also discusses the importance of philanthropy, his philosophy of giving back, and his close relationship with the University of Kentucky. This well-rounded work provides a forthright description of the rewards and challenges that come with balancing a prosperous personal and professional life.
