Utterback elected as PICMET Fellow
Jim Utterback and Ed Roberts have both been elected Fellows of the Portland International Center for Management of Engineering and Technology (PICMET), which provides an annual international platform for academics, industry professionals, and government representatives to exchange new knowledge in the management of engineering and technology. Roberts and Utterback received two of the 11 PICMET Fellow Awards given this year to recognize outstanding contributions to the development and growth of this discipline.
The many nominees were evaluated in technology management research, education, and other aspects of technology management leadership by a global panel of judges assessing worldwide impact on technology management and innovation. Roberts and Utterback, who have been MIT faculty members since 1961 and 1979 respectively, were both cited as “influential scholars throughout the world” in these fields.
