SOUTHFIELD — The International Council of Systems Engineering Michigan Chapter is pleased to announce a strategic alliance dinner meeting to be held at The Engineering Society of Detroit Monday, Sept. 28.

There will be two distinguished speakers – Bryan Moser of Boston, Mass., and John Juhasz of Cleveland, Ohio.

The dinner meeting is titled “Leveraging PM-SE Integration and the PMI-INCOSE-MIT Strategic Alliance for Project/Program Success – Advancements in Complex Systems, Project Design, and Megaproject Management.”

The meeting runs from 5 to 8:30 p.m. and will be held at The Engineering Society of Detroit, 20700 Civic Center Drive, Suite 450, in Southfield.

A limited number of tickets are available, in advance only, at

In the main presentation, “Integrated Systems Engineering and Program Management for Performance on Complex Initiatives,” featured speaker Bryan Moser of the Massachusetts of Technology, the University of Tokyo, and Global System Design LLC, will discuss methods and benefits of project design, an innovative improved approach in which development projects are viewed as sociotechnical systems, designed by collaborative cross-functional teams across cost, schedule, scope, and risk scenarios.

Attendees will be briefed on the latest research and curriculum initiatives at MIT supporting the dynamic needs of complex strategy, development, and deployment.

In an introductory presentation, “Megaprojects for Complex Systems: Re- engineering Our Critical Infrastructure,” John Juhasz of the INCOSE Cleveland-Northern Ohio Chapter, the INCOSE Power and Energy Systems and Critical Infrastructure Protection and Recovery Working Groups, and Telepath Systems Inc., will inform attendees about new activities advancing the integrated application of megaproject management and systems engineering to better handle increasing system complexity and improve the reliability, resilience, and interoperability of critical infrastructure systems.

His talk will address specific safety and security challenges to the power grid, including threat such as EMP and cybersecurity, and a briefing on new collaborative activities between INCOSE, InfraGard/FBI, IEEE, and NASA on infrastructure will be provided.

The meeting program will also include an overview of the activities, work products, and publications available through the PMI-INCOSE-MIT Strategic Alliance, as well as on update on Program Management/Systems Engineering Integration resources.

“We are very fortunate to have Bryan Moser and John Juahsz both coming here to Michigan as speakers,” said Dr. Khurshid Qureshi, INCOSE Michigan Chapter president, and services director of Worldwide Systems Engineering at Dassault Systèmes. “I believe that Mr. Moser’s knowledge of complex sociotechnical systems, project design, and teamwork is second to none in the world and that Mr. Juhasz has a message on critical infrastructure that is especially relevant in Michigan.”
