SCSPE 2017 Fall Symposium: “Adding Value for Design Professionals”

September 22nd, 2017

Ever wondered why engineering services are less valued than other professional services? Attorneys, accountants, management consultants, marketing experts—to name a few—all command a higher labor multiplier than engineers. Perhaps it’s time our profession to take a serious look at trying to close the value gap. That’s what this workshop is about.

Two reasons why creating added value has become an important issue for engineers: (1) the growing commoditization of engineering services and (2) the increasing competition for engineering talent. These are trends that show no sign of abating, even as business picks up in a recovering economy. Value creation is a hot topic in business literature, but is too seldom discussed in our profession. In this workshop, we’ll explore the following strategies for adding value to our work:

  • Developing a client-centered perspective
  • Delivering business-driven results
  • Providing outstanding client experiences
  • Building strong relationships
  • Sharing valuable content

This workshop will challenge you to rethink how you diagnose problems, design solutions, and deliver results as an engineer. Join us for a fresh take on value creation in the engineering profession!
