The SEI Strategic Plan
“The idea is to be able to develop highly capable, rapidly evolving, innovative systems, but to do so in a way where the risk of completion of projects is within the bounds of acceptability for major systems developments.”
In this podcast, Bill discusses the development of the long-term, technical strategic plan of the SEI to advance the practice of software engineering for the Department of Defense (DoD) through research and technology transition involving the DoD, federal agencies, industry, and academia.
