Sibling Rivalry: Can lean approaches help integrate systems and software engineering?



We live in a world where our conceptual reach is on the verge of exceeding our technological grasp. Our ability to build these systems is increasingly challenged. Dr. Turner asserts that a significant part of the problem resides in a disconnect and a form of sibling rivalry between two critical development disciplines: systems and software engineering.


Dr. Richard Turner is a Distinguished Service Professor at Stevens Institute, a Visiting Scientist at the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University and a respected researcher and consultant with thirty years of international experience in systems, software and acquisition engineering. Dr. Turner has led process improvement initiatives across a broad range of disciplines.
