CEO of Dynatec
“Jim Novack is CEO of Dynatec (www.dynatec.es), an engineering services company based in Madrid, Spain with over 200 highly qualified engineers and technicians in design, construction and maintenance for the petrochemical, industrial and energy sectors, both conventional and nuclear, working on projects for their engineering companies worldwide.
Since graduating from UCLA in 1982 with an Electrical Engineering degree, Jim has been continuously involved with technology and business innovation projects, including the first adaptations and presentations to the European market of the KAYPRO transportable computer, invention of the Beep Seat, and CEO of the real estate portal Avenida.com for one of the main Spanish newspapers, ABC. For the Dynatec corporation, he has recently led the development of the Talent Chemistry Method® (TChM), which combines the objective testing of technical skills with an evaluation of the human skills required for each of 80 engineering positions, in order to select and provide the best and most appropriate engineers for its global clients.
It is precisely this combination of engineering and humanist skills that has led to the development of the eyebee® Remote Expert, a simple, robust and low-cost method to connect people in the design office with workers in the field in real time, to be demonstrated for the first time in public at the AR in Action 2017 event. This “calling” to create and implement disruptive projects that solve real needs and improve people´s lives using technology, applied in a reliable, powerful and easy-to-use way is also at the heart of Jim´s new project Talent Swarm (www.talentswarm.com), a real-time 3D virtual collaborative work environment (CWE) that combines the latest videogame, Big Data and telecom technology, a veritable “Second Life for Engineers”, serving as the cradle-to-grave data repository for large and complex engineering, construction and aviation projects.”
