Presentation: Systems engineering plays a critical role in product and systems development. This role becomes increasingly important as we strive to effectively respond to change and manage uncertainty during the development of software-intensive systems. Through interactive exercises participants explore systems engineering as an integrated component within an Agile framework and the importance of these practices in supporting Agile-at-Scale. Tutorial topics include:

  • An overview of Agile principles and basic Scrum Framework and systems engineering as an integrated component.
  • Systems engineering practices within the levels of planning including requirements analysis and design, the product roadmap, and release planning.
  • Systems engineering and the agile team with a discussion on team development and components of a high performing team
  • A comparison of validation and verification practices between traditional and agile practices.

Participants are requested to read the Scrum Guide at This guide defines some of the concepts used during this workshop.

I recently registered for this seminar and will be attending this Saturday. I heard the Maryland half marathon is scheduled for that morning and will be run in that area. Will that impact this seminar? Are there any road closures in the area?

Thank you,

Thanks for the question. We do not expect a problem. Class starts at 8:30. Everybody should arrive by 8:00 for breakfast. Runners should not get to JHU/APL til 9:00.

I am contemplating attending the tutorial on May 10 but I might not be able to decide until that morning because of other potential obligations. Would it be possible for me to register in person if I decide to attend or are only advance regisrations accepted?

There is room for a few walk in attendees. You should be good to go.
