John Clark Represents HRA INCOSE at the 2016 IW!!!
John Clark, HRA Director of Training and Education, participated in the 2016 INCOSE International Workshop (IW) held in Los Angeles from Saturday January 30th thru Tuesday February 2nd. The IW is held annually at that time of year to review the past year’s actual technical progress, next year’s planned technical progress, and prepare for the following July’s International Symposium (IS). The IW is The event of the year for systems engineers to contribute to the state of the art.
The IW is organized and run by the Technical Operations (Tech Ops) arm of INCOSE. There are a total of 41 Working Groups (WGs) and an average of 46 meetings involving these WGs and other groups on each of the four consecutive days. Tech Ops manages the WGs, IWs, and the ISs. The 2016 IW site may be viewed here. Photos of the IW may be viewed by logging into INCOSE Connect.
John serves as the founder and chair of the Training WG and the chair of the Process Improvement WG. He led these two WG meetings and previously received two awards as shown in the attached photo wearing his HRA shirt! John also serves as the founder and author of the SE Handbook Tutorial and SE Fundamentals Tutorial webinars, and the recruiter for the Tech Ops monthly webinars.
At the IW he represented the HRA Chapter in chapter-related meetings including the Americas Sector chapter leaders meeting chaired by the new Director, Dr Steven Dam, and the WG-Chapter integration meeting chaired by Jim Armstrong. Dr Dam will be organizing a chapter leaders meeting of all of the chapters soon. Jim presented a matrix of which Europe, Middle East, and Asia (EMEA) Sector Chapters participated in which WGs, and will develop one for the Americas Sector. HRA Chapter members are encouraged to increase their participation in the WGs.
The IW is a great place to exchange ideas on technical activities and work together for the benefit of the systems engineering community. HRA Chapter members are highly encouraged to participate in the IW. If you have any questions, please contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
