Upcoming Chapter Events

Chapter Meeting - November 14

SE Fundamentals on Portfolio, Program, and Project Management (P3M)

Presenter: Dr. Tina Srivastava (Gigavation & MIT)

Abstract:The disciplines of Program Management and Systems Engineering are inherently intertwined. To develop and deliver complex systems, all three sides of the “iron triangle” (cost, schedule, and performance) must be known, traded, and evolved in consideration of the others. When there is tension and confusion over the  roles  of PMs  vs.  SEs,  programs  suffer  from  deadline  overruns  and  failures.  This presentation  will introduce the fundamentals of system program management. The

target audience includes professionals from both the systems engineering and project management spheres, including those seeking a deeper common understanding  and those  new  to  either  discipline.  Every  systems  engineer  must  understand  key  P3M fundamentals  in  order  to  critically  evaluate  and,  when  necessary,  credibly  challenge  management  on potentially unrealistic expectations related to project cost, schedule, scope, and risk. Advanced methods and tools of project management will be introduced in the context of managing complex projects. Finally, this presentation will discuss strategic issues and scenarios that cannot be fully predicted such as unplanned rework,  perceived  versus  actual  progress,  and  misalignments  between  work  breakdown  structures, organizations,  and  product  architectures.
