A Note From ASEM's 2022-23 President   |   September 2023

Dear ASEM Community:

I am delighted to announce that two new members have recently joined our Industry Advisory Board (IAB). Dr. Cyril Mark Taylor, CPEM, CISSP, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of the United States Special Operations Command is now the 8th member of the IAB’s industry representative group. And, Dr. Alvaro Rodriguez Prieto, CPEM, the Asset Integrity & Performance Management Advisor to SGS. and an Associate Professor at UNED, Spain, is our newest addition to the IAB Steering Committee. 

 Yesim Sireli

Welcome aboard Mark and Alvaro! As always, if you would like to join the IAB or to nominate someone who is a high-mid level decision-maker in a private, non-profit, or government organization in or out of the United States, please do not hesitate to contact me at

As we grow the IAB, our International Annual Conference has been widening its reach as well. That growth brings more of our community members together and the need arises to register for different events prior to the conference. One such event is the Industry Tour of US Mint. Since space is limited and filling up fast, I hope you consider registering for the tour soon.

Lastly, It is with great sadness I inform you that  ASEM’s former International Director and EU Section President, Willy Van Overschée, has passed away. Willy had served the Society for many years and made significant contributions to the development of the EU Section; other international sections, to the EMBoK, and to ASEM’s tactical planning efforts. As we say farewell to a friend, we are grateful for the valuable knowledge and vast experience he generously shared with us.
Best wishes to all…

Resilience means having the ability to bounce back, to stare down adversity, take action and grow from the experience. Integrating workplace resilience into teams is essential for today's workers to handle increasing uncertainties, deal with greater complexity, have greater confidence in taking risks, improvise with the available tools and resources and, ultimately, be more fulfilled by their work.

But, how do you build a resilient team? We draw from our research in workplace resilience which surfaced four factors: Active Problem Solving, Team Efficacy, Confident Sensemaking, and Bricolage.

Intended Audience:

Engineering management professionals who work in teams, lead teams, or oversee teams, especially if those teams operate in a hybrid manner across work sites, time zones, and countries.


Learn how to improve workplace resilience in team settings.

  • Understand the role of psychological safety in teams.
  • Design the experience of being a member on a virtual team.
  • Start practicing bricolage in team behaviors.

Instructor Biographies:

Dr. Larry Mallak creates and uses innovative methods to improve design processes and organizational systems. His work on team resilience and corporate ethnography is bringing new tools and improved outcomes to global teams. He’s a Professor at Western Michigan University, an ASEM Fellow, and his work has been featured in TEDx, Engineering Management Journal, WORK, and more.

Jonathan Rees
is an author, consultant, and trainer in leadership and strategic facilitation. He builds on his experiences from corporate life that included 14 years at Hewlett-Packard leading a virtual team and current work with blue light services in the U.K.

                                Another Terrific IAC in Tampa!

                                Thank you to all who contributed to ASEM’s 2022 hIAC last week.  Your presence, whether face-to-face or virtual, was inspiring.  While the numbers are not quite all in, by all appearances, the conference was a huge success. 

                                Several of those present in Tampa were kind enough to share their appreciation for our return to a conference where all could share EM related practical experiences, emerging and continuing research, and the great joy of seeing colleagues in person.  Getting back to a three-dimensional view of personages was rewarding.  And, being able to see and hear, virtually, from others around the globe in two-dimensions was also meaningful.  The hybrid, format allowed ASEM to support those who’s ability to travel may have been restricted. ASEM plans to continue this format.

                                The technical presentations were informative, challenging, and encouraging.  EM is alive and growing.  The student case competition; well, that was wonderful. Congratulations to the winning teams. If you missed the 2021 Sarchet Award winner’s presentation, be sure to check it out on ExOrdo.  Suzie Long gave a touching and moving presentation.  ASEM looks forward to a featuring the Sarchet Award winner presentation at each conference. 

                                ASEM will be in Denver at The Curtis Hotel in 2023.  Mark your calendars, make your plans, and if you won’t be able to travel, tune up those web connections.  Denver is an amazing place to visit and ASEM is an amazing family of engineering management protagonists. The 2023 ASEM hIAC is going to be great!

                                Opportunity to Contribute to ASEM Professional Certifications

                                ASEM seeks knowledge volunteers as part of a team chartered to investigate validation or accreditation of ASEM’s growing portfolio of certifications. The use of a third-party standard, has long been discussed. Organizations such as ABET use international standards such as ISO 9000. The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) and the IACET (International Accreditors for Continuing Education and Training) are two examples of U.S. organizations that accredit personnel and continuing education related certifications or certificates. The major deliverable for the Accreditation Project is a actionable plan for obtaining recognized and effectual accreditation as our certification/badging products grow. If you have applicable accreditation knowledge or experience and would like to contribute to this please contact the ASEM Executive Director (
