Product Line Engineering (PLE) and Lean/Agile share common goals – faster delivery and lower cost with better quality. PLE organizes people in a factory that produces the products in a product line from engineering assets shared across the portfolio. Lean/Agile organizes people in cross-functional, self-managed teams and teams-of-teams, which, at scale, are called value streams. Both approaches strive to reduce the handoffs, delays, and rework that occur when organizations mis-utilize their engineers and developers. This talk discusses how PLE and Lean/Agile principles support one another.

This program is completely organized around delivering value through dozens of cross-functional agile teams, strongly influenced by SAFe LSE for alignment and coordination.
