Real-Time Agile Systems and Software Development
I'm going to be keynoting Parasoft's Embedded Testing and Compliance Summit in May 6. Here's a short video on it. Parasoft will be giving away one of my books during the summit. Hope to see you there.
I also posted a blog "Can Systems Engineering Really be Agile" in response to quite a large number of comments on my Linked In page. You can read it here.
My latest book, Agile Model-Based Systems Engineering Cookbook, is out, available on Amazon and Packt. I think you'll like it.
The book has five main chapters, each of which focuses on recipes for some important aspect of agile model-based systems engineering. The chapters are
Chapter 1: Basics of Agile Systems Modeling
Chapter 2: System Specification: Epics, Use Cases, User Stories, and Scenarios
Chapter 3: Systems Architecture: Trade Studies, Merging Use Cases, and Creating Architectures
Chapter 4: Hand Off to Downstream Engineering
Chapter 5: Verification and Validation, including system simulation and Test Driven Modeling
Each chapter has several recipes for crucial systems engineering tasks and the creation of critical systems engineering work products using MBSE in an agile way.

The menu at the top of each page either takes you to the relevant page or to a list of relevant pages.
There is even a members only site for those who want to access to even more stuff. I teach and consult on all these topics - see my Services page.
