Working Groups & Initiatives

Technical Operations' Working Groups & Initiatives create the resources practitioners need.  Discuss, collaborate, share in person and online across 50 Working Groups and Initiative teams with a wide diversity of interests. INCOSE Working Groups create products, present panels, develop and review standards, and forge industry partnerships.

As a member of an INCOSE Working Group you will

  • Bring value to other INCOSE stakeholders in your interest area
  • Build expertise and contacts
  • Help develop and review international standards
  • Share information across Working Groups 
  • Create products to advance the state, art and practice of systems engineering

Joining a Working Group

Joining an INCOSE working group couldn't be easier! Just access your INCOSE profile page (after logging in, click on the circle icon with your photo or initials at the upper right of any page, then choose Profile Home). There, you'll see the link to join any working groups you choose.
