SAIC seeks personnel who can use rational, systematic, science-based techniques, advanced analytical methods, and critical thinking to inform and improve decision making and complex processes or systems. In addition, personnel are required to: (1) Have a working knowledge of ORSA concepts, analytic techniques, and methodologies such as: mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, mathematical optimization, simulation, stochastic-process models, expert systems, and decision analysis; and/or (2) Have a working knowledge of the characteristics of a learning organization to include systems thinking, personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, and team learning.
- Design and identify, find, work with and/or develop advanced techniques. Develop creative solutions for problems of high complexity. Direct and provide quality assurance of complex problems carried out by a multi-person team. Challenge both the team and decision makers to ensure they understand the implications of their approach and recommended solutions. Coach and mentor more junior members of the ORSA profession. Identify hidden issues and unclear requirements. Provide guidance to resolve complex trade-off analysis.
- Understand and explain the strengths and limitations to modeling and analysis techniques and help choose the appropriate techniques for a particular problem. Challenge the quality of data and can validate modeling results. Understand the basics of facilitation and can lead teams through the modeling and analysis process.
- Create and apply the appropriate modeling and analysis techniques given a problem. Should be able to collect required data, elicit data for variables required, verify data appropriateness and accuracy, present findings and write/edit technical reports. Helps teams identify the steps needed to implement a course of action. Be open to learning and experimenting with innovations to analytic tools and methods.
- Demonstrated skills in analyzing intelligence and/or related information and technical data, documenting information and processes, interpreting analytical results, writing and editing skills at technical/professional level, and managing internal and external customer relations. Shall be an effective mentor and communicator.
- Conduct problem identification and requirements analysis
- Develop and document advanced analytical methods (i.e. data mining, statistical analysis, and mathematical models) to improve analytic tradecraft
- Apply decision analysis methods to evaluate analytic tools, data, and processes to determine their feasibility, usefulness and value, and present the results
- Develop threat, risk and mitigation models
- Develop framework for, and perform prioritization of, tools, data, and processes
- Research and document process workflows and data flows
- Perform resource allocation analysis
