Die Welt der Systementwicklung braucht eine neue Kultur, ein neues Vorgehensmodell, eine andere Attitude, eine echte Vision davon, warum wir Technik bauen. Value-based Engineering bietet genau das:  eine neue Kultur, ein neues Vorgehensmodell, eine andere Attitude, eine echte Vision. Wie geht Value-based Engineering? IEEE 7000 zeigt den Weg. Im September 2021 wurde dieser erste globale Standard veröffentlicht, der Unternehmen und vor allem Start-ups eine Method an die Hand gibt, eine bessere Zukunft umzusetzen.
