Speaker: Michael Howell, P.E., SE, MBA, M.ASCE
FAILURE: When Engineers Make Mistakes

At the Walnut Grill Fox Chapel
911 Freeport Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15238

This session will look closely at the role mistakes can have for engineers. First, we will discuss why mistakes happen and our response to them once they do. Second, we will discuss some of the ways to create environments within our organizations and teams that are better suited to minimizing the frequency and the severity of our mistakes.

Whether you are an entry-level engineer, a mid-level P.E., or a senior executive, how we are prepared and how we respond are usually the only differences between our mistakes becoming either a success or a failure.

In addition to the presentation, we will be recognizing all of the new P.E.’s in Allegheny County that became registered in 2017 and 2018. Please join us in welcoming them to our Chapter.
