Attendees will learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), as well as the five core competencies of the Lean Enterprise. Attendees will also gain insights and practice how to coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline with DevOps culture, and a Lean Portfolio. The first two days of the course—Leading SAFe®—will provide them with the basis to teach SAFe to leaders. The final two days focus exclusively on what it takes to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise.
Becoming a Certified SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC), and becoming a change agent, will enable attendees to coach and guide the enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace and empower them to implement a Lean-Agile SAFe transformation.
How to Apply Patterns to Requirements and Configuration Management using DOORS Next Generation
In order to receive the benefits of applying Configuration Management to Requirements in the Systems Domain, an enormous amount of understanding, analysis, and preparation must go into the creation of the configuration strategy for an enterprise, program, or project. Having a set of patterns, reduces the time needed to understand and prepare, while aiding in the analysis of the system to be configured.
- How to use Configuration Management with Requirements
- How to identify and illustrate patterns
- How Patterns have been applied to Real-World Systems

How to improve the Reuse of Manual Test Scripts & Related Artifacts using Rational Quality Manager
Organizations often struggle with reuse when simply documenting the manual test procedures in documents. Improving reuse can enable the organization to improve productivity, but more importantly, it can help reduce the organization’s cycle time to deliver products.
IBM® Rational Quality Manager™ (RQM) is a quality management solution that offers comprehensive test planning and test asset management from requirements to defects. This presentation will use capabilities in Rational Quality Manager (RQM) to demonstrate different ways it helps improve reuse.
Define Requirements using Global Configuration Management
Global Configuration Management (GCM) is an application that assembles configurations for itself and other contributing applications so teams can gain an overall view of the physical and logical parts of their product offering.
- Gather contributions such as requirements, designs, tests, and global configurations.
- Plan and manage the reuse of configurations in the many versions or variants of your physical or logical product line.
- Work in parallel on multiple development streams.
MBSE in the context of SAFe
It’s only in the last few years that the Scaled Agile Framework has accommodated Systems Engineering and more specifically, Model Based Systems Engineering methodologies.
This presentation speaks of a particular way to use Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) in the context of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
