Building Really Big Systems with Lean-Agile Practices

Gone are the days when companies had the luxury of long delivery cycles. To compete in today’s market, engineers must specify, build, and deliver products quickly to learn and evolve them based on customer feedback. And do so in increasingly complex, connected, and unpredictable environments. As systems engineers today face these significant challenges, many look to Lean-Agile principles and practices for solutions. While these practices have worked well for small, software systems, many organizations in automotive, aerospace, defense, and other industries apply them to their large system development. This tutorial discusses how Lean-Agile principles and practices help organizations build and evolve some of the world’s most significant and critical systems.

In this webinar, you learn how an enterprise can move from stage-gated development approaches to a flow-based, value-delivery-focused model. This model requires a more continuous approach to define and refine system specifications. Agile teams are cross-functional, so we also learn how to organize around value and perform Agile planning at a large scale. Finally, since systems continuously evolve, the webinar shows the importance of architecting systems for change (including hardware) and building a continuous delivery pipeline along with the system.
