    Many large engineering programs and product development efforts are adopting Scrum and other agile practices at the team level, but struggle finding solutions that scale beyond the team. This presentation describes how to apply lean practices to complex systems development using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). 

    SAFe for Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) is an extension of the popular SAFe method with additions for engineering practices, customer/program management collaboration, and compliance.  SAFe LSE leverages the lean principles in SAFe and extends the framework to support program concepts including program milestones, release management, system specification and design, systems and other engineering disciplines, and systems I&V to name a few.  SAFe LSE targets large engineering programs and product development and provides an alternative method to the waterfall, phased-gate approach commonly seen in contracting situations.  Come learn how SAFe LSE can improve your program and engineering development.

    Continuous delivery in software development allows us to deliver incrementally, get quick feedback, and react. A key enabler is the adoption of agile techniques and methods; key inhibitors in the enterprise are size, scale, and complexity. In particular, within large government organizations, teams face immense challenges in both the adoption of Agile and Lean principles but also scaling that adoption to an enterprise level. The Rational ALM organization is a typical enterprise, and our teams have (mostly) adopted agile principles. But agility at enterprise scale is not the same as team-based agile development. Now we must coordinate work across multiple interdependent teams to deliver value, rather than focusing on developing a single product or application. Amy Silberbauer shares her experience of adapting SAFe in an enterprise organization and describes the struggles, mistakes, and successes throughout that process. Amy identifies the key challenges, including the need to identify value, provide the right data for various audiences, and the inherent required culture shift. Learn how to avoid some common pitfalls as you and your own organization embark on this same transformation.
