Title: INCOSE Working Groups – What’s In It for Me?
INCOSE working groups offer a rich opportunity to be engaged in the state of the art and state of the practice in systems engineering. The working group activities shape the future of systems engineering, explore new techniques, collaborate across disciplines and organizations, and develop INCOSE products designed for the systems engineering practitioner. As an expert in a discipline, participation in a working group provides an opportunity to apply this expertise to benefit all practitioners. As a novice in a discipline, participation in a working group provides an opportunity to learn how things really work. This presentation will highlight some working group activities and explain how you can get involved in working groups that are of interest to you.
