Developing Systems Engineer Expertise:
Actions You Can Take

Mr. Jim Armstrong, ESEP

March 15, 2017 6:00pm Networking and Dinner, 7:00pm Lecture

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

Jim Armstrong ESEP 15 Mar 2017

Presentation: A study of top systems engineers has identified actionable information on how their development differs from general practice in talent development. This presentation will provide actionable findings and identify potential changes to our current approach. While much has been written about what systems engineering is, what systems engineers do, what defines competency, and how to teach systems engineering, not much exists on how systems engineering experts develop their abilities. There has been significant research in other fields about how expertise is developed.  Now we have similar information about systems engineering that we can use in practice.

Speaker: Jim Armstrong is an Industry Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology in the School of Systems and Enterprises. Jim has practiced systems engineering for 50 years performing various roles including configuration management, test, deployment, chief engineer, program manager, and program element monitor.  For the last 28 years, he taught, consulted, and appraised systems engineering and project management in industry and government.  He has contributed to many of the systems engineering standards and models.  Jim is active in INCOSE and is a regular presenter at the International Symposium.
