Focused at the intersection of disciplines, collaborating for a shared purpose
Identify and promote opportunities associated with the effective integration of the Systems Engineering and Project/Program
- Explore the linkages necessary to create effective integration and collaboration between systems engineers and program
- Be the intersection point where systems engineers, program/project managers collaborate and integrate their efforts.
Our scope encompasses activities relating to defining, capturing, evolving, and communicating PM/SE integration best practices.
This may include training material, guideline material, recommendations for industry best practices and standards, and shared
output with industry working groups from other organizations.
Additionally, also in scope is joining efforts with other INCOSE working groups such as Requirements, Risks, Lean SE, Agile SE, etc where appropriate, to ensure subject matter expertise is seamlessly integrated into various aspects of the systems engineering
process. Exploration of common problems and/or practices also falls within scope.
SE Handbook- review and revision of PM-SE related sections, including Chap 3.2, 3.3.3, 3.4.1,3.4.3 and 5.3.3 (New)

INCOSE collaborated with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to publish a book titled: Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering: Methods, Tools, and Organizational Systems for Improving Performance in 2017.
This book shows how organizations can become more effective, more efficient, and more responsive, and enjoy better performance outcomes. The discussion begins with an overview of key concepts, and details the challenges faced by Systems Engineering and Program Management practitioners every day. The practical framework that follows describes how the roles can be integrated successfully to streamline project workflow, with a catalog of tools for assessing and deploying best practices. Case studies detail how real-world companies have successfully implemented the framework to improve cost, schedule, and technical performance, and coverage of risk management throughout helps you ensure the success of your organization's own integration strategy.
