 In Being an Engineer Podcast

Who is Reade Harpham?

Reade Harpham learned early on in his career how to communicate with engineers (hint: use numbers). This skill has allowed him to earn the respect of engineering teams. Reade owes this to his ability to communicate in a way that allows engineering teams to fully understand and appreciate the value his human factors team brings to the table.

He has also helped develop and foster an incredible work environment at Priority Designs (check out their website – it’s an impressive firm) where a flat organizational structure has led to supreme efficiency and empowering team members to get stuff done without the bureaucracy of traditional organizations.
