321 Gang, Inc. announced today that it is now a Scaled Agile Inc. (SAI) Gold SPCT Partner, and that 321 Gang Director of Technology, Harry Koehnemann, Ph.D., a contributor to the SAFe Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) Principles, has achieved the elite designation of SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT).
This talk presents the new SAFe 4.0 and discusses how these, and the other additions, help large, engineering system builders realize the benefits of lean and agile practices.
Many have discussed, and some have questioned, how Scrum and agile principles apply to non-software disciplines. Can they apply? Will they provide benefits? We’ve been working with a large program that has gone “all in” scaling and applying agile. They build complex defense systems with hundreds of mechanical, electrical, and embedded software engineers and significant compliance demands. This program is completely organized around delivering value through dozens of cross-functional agile teams, strongly influenced by SAFe LSE for alignment and coordination.
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 […]
321 Gang’s Director of Technology, Harry Koehnenmann, will be presenting on Applying the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) to Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) at the IBM Continuous Engineering Symposium at 11:05 AM on May 12, 2015 in Dallas, Texas.
Learn about a systems engineering process that our team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory developed to successfully deliver a functional systems-engineered product. The process depended upon embedding Agile development practices within a plan-driven, hierarchical project lifecycle.
View WebcastThis talk presents the current state for SAFe LSE and show how applies to large product and program development. We will motivate the need for lean systems engineering by showing the challenges of traditional engineering in the context of and show how SAFe LSE can support systems that have variability and uncertainty.
In this 46 second video excerpt of Harry Koehnemann’s interview, he discussed how 321 Gang helped one the three major US car manufacturers to modernize their engineering life-cycle and system development process to allow them to focus on the driver experience.
View WebcastLarge programs are routinely late and over budget. Commercial complex systems gain quality only via expensive testing. Stunning, newsworthy failures occur with disturbing frequency. How can these risks and issues be mitigated? It’s a tough problem but there is a solution that is better than merely managing complexity; one must actively reduce it to permit scaling. This includes elements like organization-follows-architecture, and iteration to tighten feedback loops. We’ll show you! Please join us.
