Mission & Objectives

  1. PURPOSE AND MISSION
    The purpose of the INCOSE Risk Management Working Group (RMWG) is to advance knowledge, common understanding, and quality of practice of risk and opportunity management in the systems engineering community worldwide. Our mission is to develop value-added technical products and participative activities which help INCOSE members effectively and efficiently implement risk and opportunity management.
  2. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
    The goals and initiatives of the RMWG are to:
        A. Provide a forum for INCOSE risk management practitioners to present research and analysis results, discuss problems, and put forth improvement ideas.
        B. Establish and maintain a process for collecting and consolidating input to be used for updating the INCOSE Handbook risk and opportunity management sections
       C. Generate specific work products for consideration as input to the INCOSE Handbook, SEBoK, International Standards, and others.
       D. Develop and maintain a presentation explaining the benefits of risk and opportunity management, which can be used by members for promoting the application of risk and opportunity management practices.
