A better world through a systems approach

The International Council on Systems Engineering proudly offers its free weekly and monthly web-based service to the greater Systems Engineering community.

Once a week, the INCOSE Technical Operations Training Working Group presents the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V4.0 Tutorial series over a six month period beginning in October.

Once a month, INCOSE Technical Operations presents recognized experts in the field who discuss the "State of the Art" in Systems Engineering.

These presentations occur live, via the internet. Each lasts one hour, and includes the opportunity for attendees to submit questions to the presenter. We record the webinars and INCOSE members can access these recordings from the Member's Only pages of INCOSE Connect.

Please access the INCOSE Connect Library for a complete library of TutorialsWebinars and Recordings sponsored by INCOSE Tech Ops, Chapters and Working Groups including the Training Tutorial Webinars.

INCOSE Webinar: " The Impact of Communication on System Outcomes"
Date:  16 July 2014
Time: 15:00 UTC/ 11am EDT
Presenter(s):  Mark Phillips
General Webinar Details: Webinar 65

The Impact of Communication on System Outcomes
This high energy session introduces a ground-breaking approach to thinking about communication as a system design parameter. Successful program delivery is critical.
High performing programs, successfully delivered, power efficient day-to-day operations and drive long term, strategic growth. High performing program environments deliver
needed solutions that drive competitive advantage. However, even the most mature enterprise can fail to execute high performing programs, impacting operations, strategy
and long-term success, particularly in competitive environments. This presentation is focused on the underlying principals at work within high performing programs and a
revolutionary new way to understand and utilize the power of communication to ensure long-term success and the delivery of competitive advantage.
Learning Goals
1. An enhanced awareness of the importance of communication as a system design
element in determining technical program outcomes.
2. Case studies from U.S. Defense programs, UK civil works and global projects where
effective communication across all stakeholders led to successful delivery.
3. Case studies where ineffective communication within the program team led to
disastrous outcomes.
4. Introduction of a new, robust method for using communication to design, lead and
manage high performing programs.
