Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering

Eric Rebentisch (Editor-in-Chief)
Methods, Tools, and Organizational Systems for Improving Performance
ntegrating Program Management and Systems Engineering shows how organizations can become more effective, more efficient, and more responsive, and enjoy better performance outcomes. The discussion begins with an overview of key concepts, and details the challenges faced by System Engineering and Program Management practitioners every day. The practical framework that follows describes how the roles can be integrated successfully to streamline project workflow, with a catalog of tools for assessing and deploying best practices. Case studies detail how real-world companies have successfully implemented the framework to improve cost, schedule, and technical performance, and coverage of risk management throughout helps you ensure the success of your organization's own integration strategy. Available course outlines and PowerPoint slides bring this book directly into the academic or corporate classroom, and the discussion's practical emphasis provides a direct path to implementation.

The integration of management and technical work paves the way for smoother projects and more positive outcomes. This book describes the integrated goal, and provides a clear framework for successful transition.

Overcome challenges and improve cost, schedule, and technical performance
Assess current capabilities and build to the level your organization needs
Manage risk throughout all stages of integration and performance improvement
Deploy best practices for teams and systems using the most effective tools

Complex engineering systems are prone to budget slips, scheduling errors, and a variety of challenges that affect the final outcome. These challenges are a sign of failure on the part of both management and technical, but can be overcome by integrating the roles into a cohesive unit focused on delivering a high-value product. Integrating Program Management with Systems Engineering provides a practical route to better performance for your organization as a whole.


About the Editor-in-Chief:
Eric Rebentisch leads research projects at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Sociotechnical Systems Research Center (SSRC). His research focuses on improving the performance of technically driven organizations and their product offerings.

Trust::Data

Thomas Hardjono, David Shrier, Alex Pentland (Eds.)
A New Framework for Identity and Data Sharing
As the economy and society move from a world where interactions were physical and based on paper documents, toward a world that is primarily governed by digital data and digital transactions, our existing methods of managing identity and data security are proving inadequate. Large-scale fraud, identity theft and data breaches are becoming common, and a large fraction of the population have only the most limited digital credentials. Even so, our digital infrastructure is recognized as a strategic asset which must be resilient to threat. If we can create an Internet of Trusted Data that provides safe, secure access for everyone, then huge societal benefits can be unlocked, including better health, greater financial inclusion, and a population that is more engaged with and better supported by its government. MIT Professor Alex Pentland and his co-editors Thomas Hardjono and David Shrier, and some of the world's leading data scientists, describe a roadmap and platforms to implement this new paradigm.

About the Editors:
Thomas Hardjono is the CTO of MIT Connection Science and Engineering. He leads technical projects and initiatives around identity, security and data privacy, and engages industry partners and sponsors on these fronts. Thomas is also the technical director for the Internet Trust Consortium under MIT Connection Science that implements open source software based on cutting edge research at MIT.

David Shrier is a seasoned innovation catalyst. He is currently Managing Director of MIT Connection Science and Engineering, and leads creation and launch of other new initiatives for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. David is also on the advisory board of WorldQuant University, a program offering a totally-free, accredited, online Master's degree in analytics. David recently advised the European Commission on commercializing innovation with a focus on digital technology.

Professor Alex “Sandy” Pentland holds a triple appointment at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the Media Lab (SA+P), School of Engineering and School of Management. He also directs MIT’s Connection Science initiative, the Human Dynamics Laboratory and the MIT Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program, and has been a member of the Advisory Boards for Google, Nissan, Telefonica, Tencent, and a variety of start-up firms. For several years he co-led the World Economic Forum Big Data and Personal Data initiatives.

Frontiers of Financial Technology

David Shrier, Alex Pentland (Eds.)
Expeditions in future commerce, from blockchain and digital banking to prediction markets and beyond

Financial technology innovation has exploded in the popular consciousness, and promises a radical transformation of the global financial services industry. Over $20 billion is expected to be invested in fintech projects in 2016. How can executives, investors, and entrepreneurs make sense of the new inventions that are driving this change?

MIT Professor Alex “Sandy” Pentland, called by Forbes one of the seven most powerful data scientists on the planet, is joined by fintech intrapreneur and educator David Shrier in curating an exploration of several major trends and technologies that are changing the face of financial services. Coauthors include Deven Sharma, the former President of S&P, Oliver Goodenough, a global authority on emerging areas of law and policy, and Alex Lipton, the former head of quantitative analytics for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. From blockchain to artificial intelligence, this series of articles helps the reader grapple with this exciting area of technology innovation.
