A better world through a systems approach

INCOSE Institute for Technical LeadershipTLI Logo


Established in 2015, the Institute for Technical Leadership (TLI) is a global network of INCOSE members committed to improving technical leadership skills to better address the complex sociotechnical challenges of the twenty-first century. Following nomination by an INCOSE leader, participants embark on a two-year learning journey designed to increase their self-awareness, improve their understanding of complexity and provide experience in leading through influence in the presence of ambiguity and uncertainty.  Along the way, coaching and mentoring help them maximize the benefits derived from their experiences.  Upon completion of the program, participants are inducted as full members of the TLI, after which they continue their journey, learning from and with each other, and making their own contributions as members of a vibrant, diverse and growing network for the benefit of their organizations, INCOSE and the world at large.

Nominations to the program are solicited early in the calendar year, following the INCOSE International Workshop, and a new cohort is launched each summer during the International Symposium.  Currently the network includes 81 members from 5 continents, 10 countries and 17 U.S. states.
