Eric Rebentisch Cuvânt înainte de Larry Prusak
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 11 Apr 2017
"A great contribution to systems engineering and project management, this book lays out the fundamental challenges of integrating these two disciplines and offers well–written practical guidance on how to address those challenges. This is the most comprehensive examination I have seen on the ties between systems engineering and program management."
Dr. Art Pyster, Professor and Associate Dean for Research Volgenau School of Engineering, George Mason University
"The integration of program management and systems engineering is the vital mixture for success of complex organization and societal challenges. This was the critical ingredient for the Apollo mission, and it is urgently needed for today′s fast–paced and networked world. This is an indispensable book for those seeking evidence–based research and results."
Edward J. Hoffman, Ph.D, former, Chief Knowledge Officer NASA and Executive in Residence, Columbia University, School of Professional Studies
"Through real life cases and examples, this book makes the case for genuine integration of program management and systems engineering. It shows how a combination of shared vision, responsiveness to change, empowerment of teams and technical competence lead to value realization when dealing with complex socio–technical systems. A must–read book!"
Michel Thiry, Ph.D, FAPM, PMI Fellow
Achieve Greater Performance by Integrating your Key Program Functions
Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering makes the case for achieving significant program and project improvements through the strategic integration of program managers and system engineers.
Developed through an alliance between the Project Management Institute (PMI), International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), and the Consortium for Engineering Program Excellence (CEPE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), this integrated approach and framework offers path of successful practices for creating better solutions. This guidebook presents a diverse group of contributors in program management, systems engineering, and academia, who share their collective knowledge of best approaches to improving program results through a unified working relationship between program managers and systems engineers. From defining the integrated goal to making a successful transition, everything you need is inside, including:
  • Tools for assessing your current capabilities and building up to custom fit your organizational needs
  • Proven tactics to improve cost, schedule, and technical performance of programs and projects
  • Innovative techniques for managing risk through every stage of integration and performance improvement
Break through the silos in your organization and accomplish more together with Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering.
