I would think the skill comes from managing the multi-cultural environment of these global businesses, some more so than others, internally but they all have global markets and need to read those correctly to plan and take risks with the future direction of plant and product investments.

Any one of this executives would make for a deserving winner of the award. But for me, Akao may well be the favorite, simply because of the mess Renesas was left with after the Japan quake.

That takes inspiring leadership. I also think that the impressive turnaround of Cadence under Lip-Bu Tan deserves a lot of consideration.

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going". That is what happened with Renesas and Cadence. And really impressive that move of cutting paychecks to survive in the case of Juki Automation Systems. An the winner is... ? Parts Search

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
