9 Laws of Systems Engineering

During my last session of YouTube foraging ( oh, you don’t want to see my view history … ) I stumbled upon this gem. Thought it’s a really good webinar, spot-on and directly to the core. I’d say it’s short, even though you wouldn’t say just based on video length. It addresses the basics very briefly and clearly enough, so I’d share with you all. It might come useful to explain that everlasting question on what is Systems Engineering and what is it you’re doing. Then the blank stare and quick...

Understanding the Three Stages of Change

Change is a common thread that runs through all businesses regardless of size, industry and age. They say the only constant in the world is change. Our world is changing fast and, as such, organizations must change quickly too. Organizations that handle change well thrive, whilst those that do not may struggle to survive. The concept of “change management” is a familiar one in most businesses today. But, how businesses manage change (and how successful they are at it) varies enormously depending on the nature of the business, the...

3D UML Modelling?

Developed on top of Google SketchUp? That’s interesting. I thought it dead since Google sold it to Trimble and it went silent for the least to say, as it got to be a paid tool now. This has been tweeted today, even though the news is from 2009: UML in 3D – #oldiebutgoldie http://t.co/EqgSNudYCA — Jordi Cabot (@softmodeling) September 6, 2014 Would be interested in further development of the concept, in a more professional look & feel for using in practice, provided it was shown effective. Would be interested in seeing some...

The leading Automotive companies (both OEMs and suppliers) already picked up the lead in developing an open requirements exchange standard. And maybe this is the most important word here: standard. They are the most affected, so with a great interest in aligning exchange. Then my thoughts: how about open source requirements management tools? There are already some, but any chance soon any of them could emerge above all and replace...

On Motivation

Thinking about the way to maximize people’s involvement in your project, and full-heartedly follow you and push forward your project. How do you motivate them? There is nothing really new on this topic, people studied this area long and thoroughly. David J. Schwartz spoke about it in the The Magic of Thinking Big, illustrated by taking some largely ignored routes, like treating people the human way: “What’s the human approach?” Listening to opinions, never criticize but always praise publicly, using the sandwich...
