Siemens is the engineering group that is behind many of the products and services people take for granted in their daily lives. Engineers use scientific principles to develop products or systems to solve real life problems. Much of engineering is about innovation rather than invention. This means that engineers transform creative ideas into improved products, services, technologies or processes. A career within the field of engineering is exciting and varied as the work is constantly changing. Becoming an engineer at Siemens is about using energy, ideas and passion. It requires a range of skills and abilities that are needed across the whole business. This case study illustrates how the work of Maslow and Herzberg applies in a modern engineering environment like Siemens more than Taylor's.
