Agile is seen, correctly, as a means to achieving better results developing Software and in Systems development. In the small, agile practices and defined methodologies have been supporting good results for over a decade. As practices are scaled to value stream, portfolio, and enterprise levels each organization struggles at the point of including groups like Finance, Business Controls, and Compliance.
Many systems in aerospace, defense, automotive, medical, banking, and other industries have an unacceptable social or economic cost of failure. As a result, these systems are often subject to regulatory oversight and compliance standards. These organizations are adopting Lean-Agile methods, and are struggling to understand how their existing stage-gate compliance activities participate in a Lean-Agile flow of value.
Now that your organization has streamlined your Agile Release Train, how do you keep it on track all the way through to customer value? We’ll show you how delivery automation and coordination with DevOps is a key element of scaled agile success.

In this webinar we will discuss the challenges large systems builders face and key approaches for addressing them. We will look into the key challenges that make complex systems development so complex. While some may appear to be impediments to the adoption of Lean and Agile practices at the first glance, it is even more critical to apply Lean and Agile where cost of error may be incredibly high. We will explore the myths that surround Lean-Agile in a complex, multidisciplinary world that include hardware, firmware and other engineering domains and try to take a balanced view based on SAFe® principles—immutable, universally applicable “laws of physics” that govern product development. We will put those principles to work by considering specific implementation of the core practices around organizational structure, synchronized development, and integration and testing. We will show how practices could be adjusted to provide improved results in different contexts based on selective optimization.

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 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.
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.
