Alwyn Smit Presents at the INCOSE Netherlands Chapter Event

Share

On Thursday 19 January 2017, Alwyn Smit delivered an evening tutorial to the INCOSE Netherlands Chapter on Getting the Most out of “Work” Breakdown Structure. The tutorial has hosted by the Engineering department of the City of Amsterdam. A group of about 20 engineering professionals attended this presentation.

The tutorial got under way after a short presentation by Dick Terleth, the Chapter President, on the Chapter as well as a short presentation on the activities of the Engineering Department of the City of Amsterdam by Thomas Munster.

What made this tutorial rather unique is that here we had an Australian company delivering a tutorial in English to a Dutch audience by an Afrikaans speaking presenter. Fortunately the Dutch audience did not have too much of a problem with the South African accent and a few statements in Afrikaans were even well understood.

Something that caught my eye during Dick’s talk was the Chapter’s outreach to young system engineers referred to as “JONG INCOSE” or “YOUNG INCOSE”.

The INCOSE Netherlands is of course also well known for the book it produced on the application of systems engineering in the construction industry – something that led to additional discussion during the social part of the evening when the event was concluded with wine and snacks.
