ABSTRACT:  On the 17th anniversary of 9/11, it is prudent to review the contributions that systems engineering and project management should be making towards the prevention of unconventional terrorist attacks using any of the many weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that could be deployed against America and/or other industrialized nations.  We know that systems engineering and project management are extremely useful in the world of conventional weapons and funded government programs.  What about unconventional methods like those used on 9/11?  This presentation will review the application of systems engineering and project management principles to mitigate the risk of unconventional terrorist WMD attacks.

BIOGRAPHY:  William Good began his career as a pilot serving with the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam.  After one combat tour followed by flight instructor and project officer duties, he left the Marine Corps to work as a systems engineer in the development program (aka SED) at EDS.  While working on the Comprehensive Brokerage System (CBS) programming back office software for Wall Street, he completed an MBA in operations research at NYU.  His subsequent career that covers many skill sets and industries included flying commercially for several airlines and surviving seven airline employer bankruptcies.  His career illustrates the art of planning ahead and putting risk mitigation in place to manage the unexpected.  In 2015, he left his position as an asset manager in warfighter support, integration, and training at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC) at Schriever AFB in Colorado Springs.  Since then he has worked with The Cameron Group as a program manager and was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President more than a year ago.  In this capacity, he is shepherding the Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS) through the process of full development and deployment across multiple non-government vehicle types within the private sector.  

One unique aspect of Dr. Good’s educational background is that he taken more than 400 semester hours of coursework for credit and he has taught more than 400 semester hours of both undergraduate and graduate-level coursework.  He earned 13 certifications from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) while working for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).
