Working Groups

INCOSE working groups are a great place to meet individuals who are looking to overcome similar challenges.  These groups often span multiple regions and industries, so we can really look at these topics in a broad, informed way.   In the North Star Chapter, we have several members Chair/working in different groups like the Measurement, SE in Very Small Enterprises (VSE), Handbook as well as others. There are many topics to choose from.  Finding the groups and joining is easy!
