INCOSE Professional Development Portal Initiative


This presentation describes the INCOSE Professional Development Portal (PDP) initiative.  The presentation starts by describing the origin and overall purpose of the PDP initiative.  Then it looks at the required essentials and wow factors for the Minimum Viable Service launch at IS2022 and beyond.  The presentation then explores the different taxonomies that help to categorize the content and make it quicker to find and access the learning resources.  The presentation wraps up by examining the various functions of the PDP which include searching and browsing the learning resources catalog and other pertinent websites, a competency-based self-assessment, and the “My Bookshelf” capability.
