The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) just concluded its 2008 Annual Conference in Vancouver, Canada. The author believes the conference was a resounding success. For the fifth consecutive year, Society for Engineering & Management Systems (SEMS) partnered with IIE's Council on Industrial Engineering to produce the Enterprise Management Forum. SEMS collaborated with the Industry Advisory Board to produce two concurrent mini-tracks within the Solutions Engineering Management Track. "Taking Flight for Career IEs" and "From IE to Management -- How You Take Flight" were very well-received. Some of the topics included how to succeed in your career as an industrial engineer and the coaching/mentoring panel discussion.
