Harry Koehnemann, Director of Technology at 321 Gang is presenting Applying the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to Lean Systems Engineering at the GRUC Webcast on September 10, 2015 at noon Eastern.
The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is an industry-leading, publicly-facing framework for scaling Lean Agile development practices. It is based on Lean and Agile principles, Systems thinking, and product development flow. SAFe provides an alternative to traditional engineering challenges – early decisions, static plans, aversion to change – to better supports systems with high degrees of variability and uncertainty, yet maintain predictable delivery and compliance needs.
This talk describes how the upcoming version of SAFe – version 4.0 – provides an alternate set of principles and practices to large, engineered, product-based systems and programs. The talk discusses SAFe’s guiding principles and presents the Release Train (ART) construct which has proven success synchronizing large team of teams around agile principles. It then describes the SAFe 4.0 additions for complex, engineered systems – managing large value streams, the inclusion of suppliers, aligning system-of-systems, supporting adaptive requirements and designs, to name a few. Attendees will understand the how lean and agile practices can improve system development and various ways to adopt SAFe in their organization.
