Presentation: Technical Staffing Pipeline: Process, Challenges, and Opportunities
Technical Corporations develop and maintain two staff pipelines one for management and one for technical expertise.  Both pipelines are needed to have the company run smoothly and make decisions balancing business needs to technology requirements.  This is a critical management responsibility for a technology based company’s success.  This presentation overviews the design and operation of a typical technical staff pipeline including its development, criteria for promotion, and responsibilities.  Technical Pipelines are often associated with the results of architecture or research.  While this is often true other areas such as customer support, enablement, and manufacturing can be greatly impacted by having suitable strong technical staff.  This presentation looks at  cases in support, enablement, and manufacturing where growing technical staff can have a major impact on costs.
