About the Atlantic Systems Guild


6 * 35 Years of Experience, worldwide
If you build software, chances are that you and your organization are using some technique pioneered by The Atlantic Systems Guild.

6 * 35 Years of Experience, worldwide
The Atlantic Systems Guild does not try to teach you methods and techniques. In their presentations and workshops they strive to give you “aha”-moments. Those insights should encourage you to reflect your current methods and techniques and maybe introduce some changes to them.

The conference will be presented by the six Principals of The Atlantic Systems Guild: Tom DeMarco, Peter Hruschka, Tim Lister, Steve McMenamin, James Robertson, Suzanne Robertson.

Tom DeMarco
is the author of twelve books, most of them about the high tech workplace and its denizens, but also including a mainstream novel and a collection of short stories. His consulting practice is in the areas of risk management, litigation support, and organizational transformation.

Peter Hruschka
based in Aachen, Germany, specializes in technology transfer, requirements and design of embedded real-time systems. He is the codeveloper of the ARC42 template for system architecture documentation. In one of his earlier lives he pioneered modeling tools for structured and object-oriented methods. He has co-authored half a dozen books on methods and tools.

Steve McMenamin
in addition to being a principal, of The Atlantic Systems Guild, is Senior Vice President and CIO of Hawaiian Electric Co. He is based in Honolulu. Steve has led outstanding teams since for more than 30 years, ranging from half a dozen people to over 2,500, including software development teams as well as general business organizations. Before joi-ning Hawaiian Electric, he held executive positions at Borland Software Corp., BEA Systems Inc., and Southern California Edison Co. In addition to Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies , he is co-author of Essential Systems Analysis.

James Robertson
is a leading proponent of the principle of introducing creativity into the requirements process. His article „Eureka: Why Analysts Should Invent Requirements“ in IEEE Software, has been widely quoted and discussed. Before becoming a systems engineer, James trained as an architect and his experience in that profession provides inspiration for his work on innovation and creativity. He is coauthor of “Mastering the Requirements Process”, which introduced the Volere requirements techniques, which now have been adopted worldwide.

Suzanne Robertson
is co-author of Mastering the Requirements Process and Requirements- Led Project Management. These books introduced the Volere Requirements Techniques including the requirements template and knowledge model. Suzanne consults on the management, technological and sociological aspects of requirements.

Tim Lister
based in New York City, divides his time between consulting, teaching, and writing. He is currently working on tailoring software development processes using software risk management techniques. He is an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.
