INCOSE Webinar: "An Introduction to INCOSE"
 
Date:  20 August 2014
Time: 15:00 UTC/ 11am EDT
Presenter(s): David Long
General Webinar Details: Webinar 66

 
Abstract:
Founded in 1990, the International Council on Systems Engineering remains committed to “sharing, promoting, and advancing the best of systems engineering from across the globe for the benefit of humanity and the planet.” Though our mission remains largely unchanged from our earliest days, INCOSE continues to evolve to better meet the needs of our members and community as we seek to address the systems challenges of today and tomorrow.
In this fast-paced talk suitable for both INCOSE members and systems practitioners, we will introduce INCOSE as it stands today – our fundamental purpose, how we execute, and the value we deliver. We will highlight challenges that we face in our profession and our organization, and we will share a glimpse of our key objectives as INCOSE approaches its 25th birthday. As we lay out the fundamental picture of who INCOSE is today and what we seek to accomplish both in the near-term and the long, we know we can’t answer every question about INCOSE so we will conclude with a lively Q&A session.
