Lean-Agile development is finally, and rapidly, crossing the chasm to that last bastion of large-scale solutions development—the US Federal Government. In this tutorial, SAIs Steve Mayner and 321 Gang’s Harry Koehnemann introduce the latest trends in agile government contracting and program execution as described in TechFAR, GAO Agile Guidance and others. They will also describe how SAFe’s adaptive approach improves outcomes in programs that have historically been subject to fixed requirements and delivery dates, phase gate milestones (PDRs and CDRs), WBS and EVM.
This webinar will focus on providing the audience with tips and tricks for customizing Rhapsody using the Java API. Much of the demonstration will be presented within the context of implementing a custom profile. The presenters will outline tips and tricks on how to structure the development environment in support of the customization effort, how to efficiently deploy customizations to the engineering teams, and how to create plugins and listeners.
Presented by Kevin Johnson & Tim McKemy, Senior Solutions Consultant, 321 Gang
In this webinar we will be discussing the techniques to gain visibility into the detailed reports that management expects.
Scaling Agile to the Enterprise – Pitfalls and Practices addressed with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) 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 […]

True agility is not just a process attribute. It is also a by-product of the architecture and design of your software system. But, what does an agile architecture look like, and how do we measure it? The crux of more honest measurement is to quantify design quality. If you can quantify and then minimize growth in architectural complexity, you can free-up your software teams from playing defense (mired in late scrap and rework and unnecessary overhead), and unleash them to play more offense by increasing value, quality or responsiveness. Measurably improving design quality earlier in the life cycle and continuously thereafter can help enterprises achieve breakthrough economic outcomes.

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.

The classical systems engineering practice is mostly process centric, but with the recent advances in Information Technologies, we have started to engage in model-based and other software-supported activities that make us more efficient and our products better. The subject of our INCOSE IS 2016 paper was a pursuit of further improvements in the software tools supporting the systems engineers,
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 presented by strategic partners Tasktop and 321 Gang, you’ll learn how to connect ALM development tools across development teams to create an architecture for DevOps automation and build process models that connect the various stages of software delivery. 321 Gang and Tasktop will demonstrate various integration workflows that leverage both synchronization and OSLC linking; e.g., requirements traceability between Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management and systems like JIR
This talk presents the “Agile System Engineering Specification Workshop” and our experiences applying it. We begin with a background or lean-agile principles and practice and discuss where specification workshops fit into the lean-agile flow. We then present the workshops details specifics including guidance structure, mechanics, attendees, frequency, and logistics. We discuss how behavioral threads from SysML specifications become backlog items and how to prioritize by focusing on the highest
Topic: Lean-Agile Development for Large Enterprises: Adding Hardware to the Mix Presenters: Harry Koehnenmann, Director of Technology, 321 Gang, Inc. and Alex Yakyma, Fellow and Principle Consultant at Scaled Agile, Inc. Where: Agile 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia When: July 28, 2016 at 10:45 AM Eastern Daylight Time Large, product-centric enterprises in aerospace, automotive, defense, and the like have been adopting agile practices […]
This is the Final webcast in the IBM IoT Medical Device Solution with Rational webcast series.
Presented by Dr. Keith Collyer, IBM Corporation & Cara Rawlings, Technical Marketing Specialist, 321 Gang,
This is the third out of six webinars in the IBM IoT Medical Device Solution Webcast series.

IBM Design Manager is a relatively new addition to the IBM Jazz Suite that OSLC enables several otherwise non-OSLC compliant applications (i.e. Rhapsody, RSA, System Architect, Simulink). But Design Manager also supports several other very important features:
• Model Reviews
• Configuration Management
• Global Configuration Management
• Link Validity
The value of each of these features will be described along with a Conceptual Model for the feature and some sample screenshots of the implementation.
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.
The requirements paradigm has been changing over the last few years. There is much more interaction with stakeholders throughout the lifecycle. There is an acknowledgement that we do not know all the requirements at the beginning of a project, so we need to be able to readily accommodate change. There is also a realization that requirements drive complex projects, meaning that we need to be able to trace requirements to design, development and test. The new DOORS Next Generation facilitates all
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.
June 26 – July 1, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada: 321 Gang Booth: D1
Visit the 321 Gang Exhibitor Booth D1 and attend Harry Koehnemann’s presentation at the IBM Suite on Tuesday at 10:55 AM. The presentation topic is: Leaning our Engineering Practices with Product Development Flow and SAFe.
The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1990. Their mission is to share, promote and advance the best of systems engineering from across the globe for the benefit of humanity and the planet.
