The INCOSE Chicagoland Chapter strives to foster a world-class systems engineering environment for its current and future membership.
It is our belief that systems engineering principles and practices offer the best solution for Chicagoland and surrounding organizations competing in today's global marketplace, and that the proper application of systems engineering can directly contribute to the overall betterment of the social, economic and environmental condition of the area. When the aim is to improve cost, quality and schedule performance -- whether in industry, government or education -- it is our conviction that systems engineering provides the most viable structured approach for doing so.
Improve the systems engineering work environment for our members by educating business leaders and corporate middle management regarding the business case and the key success factors for systems engineering projects.
Improve the performance of systems engineering teams by encouraging INCOSE members to take advantage of INCOSE resources (e.g., the SE Handbook, SE Certification, etc.).
Promote the benefits of systems engineering and INCOSE in general while establishing liaisons and synergistic partnerships with key institutions, organizations and individuals.
