A decade ago Texaco initiated a Fellows program to honour and recognise technical professionals for their accomplishments and contributions to the company and to the energy industry. The selected individuals have since evolved into a synergistic team providing positive business impact to the corporation. With this evolution, the Texaco Fellows program has becomeunique in the corporate world. In addition to continuing technical work in the arenas for which they were recognised, the Fellows developed, organised and participate in a number of corporate programs including: a Group Mentoring Program, which emphasises personal effectiveness, the development of collaborative organisations and commitment to positive change; a Portals to Tomorrow Program, which provides views of possible technical and business scenarios industry; and participation in Technology Field Trips to private and governmental research centres, which provide for pollination across technical disciplines and industries. The Texaco Fellows act as a self-managed unit, expanding its scope as business opportunities arise.
