Topic: Agile Systems and Processes: Driving Agile Architecture with ConOps and Response Situation Analysis (Agile 102)
Presenter: Rick Dove (Paradigm Shift International)

Agility is enabled and maintained by a fundamentally necessary and sufficient common architecture in systems of all kinds; from agile development and deployment processes, to the agile systems and products that are deployed. This webinar will focus on tools and methods for developing a concept of (agile) operations, conducting response situation analysis, and identifying reality factors in the operational environment. These tools and methods are precursors to inform the development of an agile system or process architecture, the subject of the INCOSE Agile 101 webinar delivered September 2013. Examples will be drawn from agile systems and from agile engineering processes in a variety of domains.
Rick Dove was co-PI on the original work which identified Agility as the next competitive differentiator, funded by the US Office of the Secretary of Defense through the Navy in 1991 at Lehigh University. He went on to organize and lead the US DARPA-funded industry collaborative research at Lehigh University’s Agility Forum, developing fundamental understandings of what enables and characterizes systems agility. He authored Response Ability – The Language, Structure, and Culture of Agile Enterprise (Wiley, 2001). He has employed these agile concepts in both the architecture and program management for large enterprise IT systems, for rapid manufacturing systems and services, and for highly distributed resilient network anomaly detection. Through Stevens Institute of Technology he teaches two 40-hour graduate courses in basic and advanced agile-systems and agile systems-engineering, at client sites. He chairs the INCOSE working groups on Agile Systems and Systems engineering, and on Systems Security Engineering.
