The Silicon Valley TEMS Chapter activities

The Silicon Valley TEMS Chapter has been quite active. In 2019 we practically had an event every month; here is a list of our speakers and their titles:

  • January, we had Dr Jawad Nasrullah who talked on “From Engineer to Founder: The Startup Accelerator Experience” 
  • February, we had Mr. Andrew Webster who talked on “Situational Decision Making: Leadership in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity) world” 
  • March, we had Dr. Silvia Figueira who talked on “Managing Frugal Innovation: The Challenges of Humanitarian Engineering” 
  • April, we had Mr. Itamar Frankenthal who talked on “The 60 Minute Harvard MBA: 15 Key Business Lessons – Part 2” 
  • May, we had Mr. Ron Schilling who talked on “The Director Coach: An approach to filling the younger CEO’s ‘training gap’” 
  • June, we had Mr. Tom Pavelko who talked on “How to Save a Program or Project that is Failing and Make a Good One the Best It Can Be –Tom Pavelko’s experience in evaluating big programs in trouble and leading them to success—what’s his secret?” 

We took a summer break, but picked up again in the Fall.

  • September, we had Dr. Moises E. Robinson who talked on “Leading a Global Analog IP Semiconductor Company: Cowboy style”
  • October, we had Mr. Ron Lichty who talked on “Managing the Unmanageable: If You Are Agile, What Do Managers Do?— The critical roles that managers play in enabling agile success…” 
  • November, we had Garry Mathiason J.D. who talked on “AI-Powered HR: Legal/Ethical Implications in a World of Algorithmic Bias”
  • December, we had Dr. Moshe Gotesman who talked on “Chaos, Order, and Everything in Between – Leading Projects Silicon Valley-Style — An expert practitioner talks about the current practices in hi-tech project management.”
  • We’re planning a full-day workshop in the Spring of 2020.

The Chapter has continued to have monthly meetings except during the summer for several years now.  Audience varies in size but is growing.
