About the Author:

Dr. Edward Lumsdaine is currently Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan Technological University and Special Professor of Business, Institute for Enterprise and Innovation, University of Nottingham (England), and for many years was management consultant at Ford Motor Company. In 1994 he received the ASEE Chester F. Carlson award for innovation in engineering education. He has co-authored books and teaches workshops in creative problem solving, engineering design, entrepreneurship and innovation — a synthesis of many years of experience as engineer in industry as well as dean of engineering and professor at six different universities in the U.S. and four different universities abroad. Dr. Lumsdaine is a Fellow of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineering) and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). His engineering specialties are in aero-acoustics, vibration, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and energy conservation, and he has published over 100 papers in these fields. Each year, Dr. Lumsdaine and Dr. Binks jointly teach a course in entrepreneurship and effective problem solving for MBA students in Singapore — this book has grown out of this cooperative effort.
