Enabling Systems Engineering Competence
Charterhouse Systems supports organisations wishing to improve their “systems thinking” skills and their overall systems engineering or cross-disciplinary capability.
We provide independent advice in all areas of systems engineering, including capability development.
The consultancy specialises in the use of technical competence assessment which we generally recommend as the starting point for strategic development planning.
This is because it provides a measured baseline against which future developmental interventions can be targeted. It is also a useful indicator when assessing "value" and Return on Investment (RoI).
We can also offer support to businesses interested in the accreditation of their systems engineers through programmes such as the internationally-recognised INCOSE SEP Programme or Professional Registration though the Engineering Council.
The consultancy is led by Ian Presland, a professionally registered Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (FIET). Ian is also an internationally-accredited Systems Engineering Expert (INCOSE ESEP).
His background includes the successful design and delivery of a number of complex technical programmes and major organisational change initiatives around the world.
Until recently Ian was a member of the elite INCOSE Certification Advisory Group, the body which defines the standard and sets the examination for SE Certification worldwide.
He is currently the elected Professional Development Director of INCOSE UK.
Feel free to contact Ian at for further information where he will be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail.
