Our current research is focused on identifying system engineering approaches that address four key development challenges in a tightly constrained, rapid reaction environment: 1) changing and emerging requirements; 2) conflicting stakeholder priorities; 3) concurrent sustainment and development activities; and 4) integration of independently evolving components. We are building a concept map of the key elements that form a strategic bridge between development challenges and the specific methods, processes, and tools that successfully address those challenges. In this paper, we present our methodology for constructing a robust mapping that incorporates interviews, surveys, and rigorous analysis methods. We summarize the results from interviews with sponsor personnel, the results of a best practices survey of 116 professionals, and qualitative analysis of the survey responses.
