It’s all about a gathering together.
Can there be anything better than learning of the allies and colleagues suddenly on your side? Or, am I on their side? Or, perhaps, we are all on the same side now, confounded (or inspired) by a common enemy. Global crisis and backyard sadness. And there they are, the people you didn’t expect to meet who are helping you move that mountain with their own kind of shovels and buckets.
Engineering for Change is a project of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Just what does it mean that a standards organization is trying to solve global problems? It means we have a new ally.
E4C just came out of beta, and is being lauded for its vision and efficiency-building objectives. It cuts across discplines, engineering and otherwise, to connect needs with solutions. We will get to hear about it, and learn how to use it, at this year’s ReVisioning Value conference. I am delighted we will have Tom Loughlin, the visionary behind the online space e4c.
He is joined by another astounding problem solver and visionary, Henry Petroski, noted author and engineer’s engineer. His latest book is a must read: “The Essential Engineer: Why Science Alone Will Not Solve Our Global Problems.”
And, we are also graced with others in the design and problem-solving community! Heather Fleming of Catapult Design will join us, leading a session on problem solving and design thinking.
It is a unique opportunity to be inspired by and meet up with new allies in the global project of problem solving.
