    Abstract: Systems engineers are story tellers, they manage and communicate the story of the system so that everyone involved in its development and operations has the same understanding of what the system is supposed to do, in what conditions, with what interactions and standards. In the Agile methodology, systems engineers play a critical role in aligning teams on Agile Release Trains (ARTs) and Solution Train to a shared technical direction and partner with those teams to develop the solutions, validate technology assumptions, evaluate implementation alternatives, and create the continuous delivery pipeline.

    Presenter: As a Fellow at Northrop Grumman, Gabby serves as a change agent for her organization driving adoption of systems engineering and software development discipline across the enterprise. During her time with Northrop Grumman, Gabby has worked on a variety of complex projects and held various systems engineering leadership positions supporting the Department of Defense (DoD) and civilian agencies of the federal, state, and local governments, and the United Kingdom.

    Gabby holds a M.S. in Systems Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Miami. Gabby was the recipient of the 2019 Northrop Grumman Invention of the Year Award for her work in advancing the adoption of software development best practices. She has received the INCOSE Expert Systems Engineering Professional (ESEP) and served as the INCOSE Training Working Group Chair until 2022.
