The INCOSE Institute for Technical Leadership

Three years ago, INCOSE started the development of a initiative to enhance and strengthen the Organization’s Leadership by developing and providing a training program. The program’s purpose is to accelerate the development of systems engineering leaders who will exemplify the best of our organization and our profession. Its primary benefits are the development of individual members as capable leaders, which benefits the involved members. INCOSE benefits include growing a pool of leaders, which can be used to help lead the Organization. Another intended outcome is hopefully to enhance INCOSE’s International reputation in systems engineering.
