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.
: Dr. Tina P. Srivastava is currently serving as INCOSE’s Secretary since her election in 2015. Dr. Srivastava received the INCOSE Inaugural David Wright Leadership Award in 2014 for technical and interpersonal competencies in the practice of system engineering as a means for solving the great challenges of our planet. Dr. Srivastava co-chair of the PM-SE Integration Working Group and is one of the authors and editors of the book Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering.
Dr. Srivastava has held senior engineering leadership and technical management roles across the aerospace, national security, and commercial sectors. She is Chief Architect at Gigavation, a small business focused on cyber security founded by MIT and Harvard graduates.
Dr. Srivastava earned her S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. from MIT in Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering. She is in the MIT Strategic Engineering Research Group, Foundations of System Design and Management graduate curriculum development Core Team, and lecturer in the areas of complex systems, technology roadmapping and selection, and aviation. Dr. Srivastava is also an FAA certified pilot.
