Enterprise systems engineering (ESE) is an emerging discipline that can be used to more confidently and rapidly create the essential changes for the modern enterprise to survive in these days of enormous economic and social uncertainty. Systems engineering (SE) could have much to offer in enabling this transformation, but significant enhancements to traditional SE tools and methods must be brought to bear. This paper describes a set of principles and concepts that enables greater benefits when using the systems approach for enterprise transformation.
