In 2014 the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) was tasked to design a method for assessing the health of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) Acquisition System. The Dstl consultancy team used the Viable Systems Model to structure an assessment method and engaged with stakeholders drawn from across MOD in order to test and refine this method before delivering results in January 2015. The presentation will (i) provide an overview of the task, (ii) describe the design process, (iii) detail the results, and (iv) reflect on the lessons identified before (v) looking ahead to future challenges in this area.
