Systems Sciences Vision and ISSS Vision
In December 2018 James Martin of INCOSE Systems Sciences Working Group (SSWG) asked Peter Tuddenham to give a presentation at the INCOSE international Workshop in Torrance, California in January 2019. In response the team at the College of Exploration created a survey to all the names on ISSS mailing list of nearly 3000. In the span of a narrow time window of less than two weeks 113 people responded. The presentation he gave at the INCOSE IW is recorded on Vimeo
. This activity for a vision statement for systems sciences and also one for the ISSS organization is ongoing in 2019.
