|Dr. Michael Ryschkewitsch, formerly Chief Engineer, NASA|
When we talk about systems engineering, we mostly talk about the science of systems engineering as captured in books, policies and courses. We rarely talk about the art of systems engineering and even less often about what it takes to lead a team through a complicated systems engineering problem and delivering a product that meets the customers needs and balances those needs with all of the constraints. This talk will focus on the “other” attributes and work that has been done in the NASA Office of the Chief Engineer to establish an objective basis for developing the “soft” skills.
