Atlas presents all that the team learned from the more than 600 individuals who participated in Helix, our extensive literature surveys, and our experiences with the 32 organizations that participated in Helix.
The Paradoxical Mindset of Systems Engineers offers an in-depth look at the qualities effective systems engineers require and the positions they should seek for successful careers. Written by Helix researchers, it explores why systems engineers are uncommon and how they can assess, improve, and cleverly leverage their uncommon strengths. The book gives employers practical strategies and tools to understand their systems engineers and advance them to higher performance.
