What's New in SAFe 5.0

SAFe 5.0 was released late last year and introduced many new, big ideas centered around the enterprise – Business Agility, Organizational Agility, Continuous Learning Culture, Customer-Centricity, and Design Thinking. In addition, there are many other, more subtle, ‘behind the Big Picture’ changes.

The question for large system builders is, ‘what guidance do all these changes provide for our really big systems that include hardware, extended supply chains, regulatory concerns, and other challenges?


Join us for this presentation, as we discuss how these new SAFe additions provide benefit to organizations building large, cyber-physical systems.

What's New in SAFe 5.0

SAFe meets Global Configuration Management

Many large clients are exploring IBM’s Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) global configuration management capabilities to enable parallel and variant development. At the same time, they are looking to embrace enterprise Scaled Agile (SAFe® ) principles to drive increased business value from their development activities.


Can you do both? YES! In this session, we’ll explore how to combine these two approaches to increase efficiency and maximize value.

Now Available! The Economics of Value Delivery: Do the Math!

How can we connect the dots from the economics to the practices we want to apply and the decisions we need to make? In this session we use scenarios, in story problem format, and apply real numbers to demonstrate the value of the principles in action.

We will explore finding optimal batch size, applying the economics framework to a specific decision, the cost of too much WIP, “death by shoulder tap”, and fast feedback cycles. We will also dive into the broad-brush practices of collaboration and relentless improvement.

As a result of this session we will equip you to apply math to reinforce the economics of value delivery.  No slide rule required.
