Dr Chris Sibbald brings over 20 years of practical systems engineering experience to his current role as Product Manager for IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC), IBM Rational Harmony and the IBM Measured Capability Improvement Framework (MCIF).
Chris started his engineering career in 1986 working for companies such as Kraft, General Foods and World Heart Canada. His ability to integrate theory and practice permitted him to make significant scientific contributions in the domain of electromagnetics early in his career. This work earned him the Governor General of Canada Gold Medal for highest standing at the graduate level at the University of Ottawa. After completing his doctorate, Chris worked as the Payload Systems Engineer on the Radarsat program; Canada’s first commercial remote sensing satellite.
Following the launch of RADARSAT in 1995, Chris contributed to the successful development of several other commercial, military and scientific payloads such as MIPAS, FUSE, CALTRAC, and APAR among others by providing expert electromagnetic compatibility services.
Chris believed that systems engineering practices supported by tools such as DOORS®, and TAU® were not limited to aerospace domain. As co-founder and President of Objective SST, a Rational Education Partner and Value-Added Reseller, Chris leveraged his systems engineering experience to provide expert training and mentoring on requirements management, systems and software engineering and tools to clients in the military, aerospace, telecommunications, financial, and software development domains.
In 2000 Chris joined Telelogic. From 2000 to 2008 he held various positions including Manager of Application Engineering, Director of Application Engineering, and Vice President of Standards and Technology. During this period, he made several significant contributions to the systems and software engineering body of knowledge whilst realizing Telelogic’s strategic goals of creating new solutions and bringing them to new markets.
