We explored the impact of a proactive approach to job responsibilities for an engineering organization. A definition of reactive and proactive engineering behavior is offered, then the organizational, human, life cycle and management aspects are examined with respect to a competitive marketplace. With few exceptions, proactive behavior was found to be more desirable for organizations who were seeking growth, increased competitiveness, shorter product introduction times, or participation on a global level.
