    Talk Title: Agile Systems & Processes -- Risk Management and Mitigation

    Series: INCOSE Speaker Series

    Abstract: To be effective, systems/processes have to mate well with their operational environments. Operational environments are not static, they react to disturbances and evolve with opportunity and risk. Inserting a system into an environment is a disturbance. Sustaining a system in a dynamic environment requires compatible evolution. The environment is the problem space the system will occupy. Understanding the requirements for a compatible-to-the-space solution is best done before system functional requirements shape an incompatible path. Given enough understanding about the problem, effective solution requirements and features becomes (almost) obvious. The problem shapes and constrains effective solution. But how do we characterize the environment as a dynamic problem space and develop solution-response requirements; and then, how do we structure a solution for risk-mitigating agility? This webinar introduces methods for dynamic problem-space characterization, and reviews companion methods for risk-mitigating solution-space agility.

    Biography: Rick Dove is a leading researcher, practitioner, and educator of fundamental principles for agile enterprise, agile systems, and agile development processes. In 1991 he initiated the global interest in agility as co-PI on the seminal 21st Century Manufacturing Enterprise Strategy project at Lehigh University. Subsequently he organized and led collaborative research at the DARPA-funded Agility Forum, involving 250 organizations and 1,000 participants in workshop discovery of fundamental enabling principles for agile systems and processes. He is CEO of Paradigm Shift International, specializing in agile systems research, engineering, and education; and is an adjunct professor at Stevens Institute of Technology teaching graduate courses in agile and self-organizing systems. He chairs the INCOSE working groups for Agile Systems and Systems Engineering, and for Systems Security Engineering, and is the leader of the current INCOSE Agile Systems Engineering Life Cycle Model Discovery Project. He is an INCOSE Fellow, and the author of Response Ability - the Language, Structure, and Culture of the Agile Enterprise.
