Report Name: Technical Leadership Development Program – Year 5

Publication Date: April 30, 2014


This report summarizes the research findings, conclusions, and recommendations for the SERC ResearchTask 4 Year 4 (RT4 Y4) which addressed the observed short-comings of previous SYS 350B Business Lens and SYS 350C Enterprise Lens Technical Leadership pilot courses conducted in FY12 with both DAU faculty and government systems engineers. The research a) leveraged the content development lessons learned during the SYS 350A Systems Lens pilots, b) refined and enhanced the integration of the SYS350B and SYS 350C syllabi, c) conducted highly successful SYS 350B and SYS 350C student pilots in December, 2013 and March, 2014 respectfully, and d) concluded with recommended pilot course refinements. When updated with recommended post-pilot additions and deletions, SYS 350B and SYS 350C will be ready for pilot reevaluations and subsequent transition to the DAU.
