Skill Level: Team/Subsystem Leads or higher.
This two-day course will use a threaded case study to help participants define and utilize effective mental models to analyze and respond to challenges arising across the project lifecycle. Challenges from the following contexts will be addressed: systems thinking context, technical baseline context, and project management/safety and mission assurance context. This will be accomplished by immersing participants in strategic and tactical program and project lessons learned spanning systems engineering, project management and safety and mission assurance, as well as technically-detailed topics. Through guided exercises and discussions, participants will be challenged to critically evaluate problems and solutions that have been faced by NASA, United States Department of Defense and industry project teams. Emphasis will be placed on evaluating the context for issues and the development of courses of action along with the consequences of decisions.
This course is designed for team practitioners/technical engineers, team/subsystem leads, project managers/project systems engineers and program managers/chief engineers. All attendees should have a basic understanding of NPR 7123.1 and NPR 7120.5
All supplemental resources are NASA accessible only unless otherwise noted.
