Abstract

The presentation describes the efforts and results so far to evolve the current INCOSE Competency Framework to the next level: a Systems Engineering Role-Based framework. The presentation explores the background and impetus for developing a new competency framework and describes how the proposed framework has been aligned with a number of other competency models and frameworks, bodies of knowledge and initiatives. The presentation also looks at current efforts to develop an initial draft Role Definition Guide that will describe the typical roles that systems engineers may assume. Results from a working session with representatives of the Corporate Advisory Board at the IW2016 are discussed. The presentation concludes by exploring all the remaining coordination activities and other actions required to successfully develop and publish Version 0.75 and eventually Version 1.0.
