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 […]
We’ve helped many of these customers adopt and scale agile using the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®). In doing so, we met with Dean Leffingwell (creator of SAFe) and the team at Scaled Agile (SAI) to discuss some of our perceived challenges using SAFe in an engineering environment. We were looking for support for engineering work (requirements, designs, modeling, simulations, trade studies), different role names, support for supply chains, and inclusion of manufacturing and production — just to name a few. Our plan was to become a Scaled Agile partner and deliver SAFe-based training that 321 Gang would supplement with our expertise on engineering. At the same time, SAI was also looking for ways to serve the needs of the large system builders, and invited us to collaborate on a version of SAFe for Lean Systems Engineering…and so it was that SAFe LSE was born.
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.
Scaled Agile Unveils Preview of SAFe® for Lean Systems Engineering (SAFe LSE)
First-of-its-kind framework provides values, principles, and practices to help build complex, software intensive systems in a lean and agile manner
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), the world’s most comprehensive framework for adopting Lean-Agile best practices across an enterprise, today launched a public preview of SAFe for Lean Systems Engineering (SAFe LSE). SAFe LSE is the first-ever framework that provides the values, principles, practices, and organizational constructs necessary to build and deploy complex, cyber-physical systems faster, and with higher quality.

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.

View WebcastThis follow-on webcast is the second in a series discussing how apply the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to complex embedded systems development. SAFe is an extensible framework created through collaborations with organizations that have successfully scaled agile practices. SAFe continuously evolves based on experiences with its applications at a wide variety of organizations and programs.
View WebcastThis webcast presents on overview of the SAFe framework and how it can be applied to large, complex systems. Dean Leffingwell, a leading scaled agile methodologist and author as well as SAFe’s creator, presents the framework and shows how it helps organizations and programs scale agile beyond the team level Next, we will briefly discuss how SAFe can be extended to support additional needs in complex systems including formal requirements management, emergent systems design and …
