Interview with Mandy Chessell CBE II

In her second interview for Archives of IT, Mandy talks about the interests she developed in the later stages of her career with IBM.  That includes AI technology and wider issues of women in the industry and management styles. 

She has been appointed as the president of the Institute of Engineering Design for a two year term and reflects on the importance of product design in engineering. 

Although Mandy refers to her post IBM life as “retirement”, she has set up a new business to focus on the application of the Egeria project for open industry standards in metadata and talks about its significance in a world of increasing data-dependent operations in most aspects of our lives.
