Hello Folks, On behalf of the entire Scaled Agile team and the SAFe Contributors, we are delighted to announce a preview of SAFe® 5.0 for Lean Enterprises. Why is this update important? Globalization, fast-moving markets, disruption, the unprecedented pace of technological innovation. Organizations know that they need to transform—now—to compete. But their existing business models, organizational hierarchy, and technology infrastructure simply can’t keep up with how quickly the company needs to adapt. Agile product delivery isn’t enough. You need business agility..
Now for video six in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core practices and principles of Agile software engineering (ASE). Here, one of our Lean-Agile thought leaders, Ken Pugh, talks about discovering story details with scenarios. A scenario defines a system behavior from an external point of view. A story, a short description of a small piece of desired functionality, can have many scenarios. Watch as Ken breaks a story down into.
Here is the fifth video in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core practices and principles of Agile Software Engineering (ASE). In this installment, Lean-Agile thought leader Ken Pugh talks about the significant advantages of an ‘always-think-testing’ approach. By thinking about testing early in the development process (‘shifting testing left’), we can avoid the exponentially higher costs of finding defects late in the timeline from requirements definition to production. Shifting testing left.
In just a few weeks, 2,000 members of the SAFe® community will gather for the 2019 Global SAFe Summit in San Diego from September 29 – October 4 at the Marriott Marquis. I continue to be humbled at how people like you have helped us grow this event from humble beginnings into one of the industry’s must-attend experiences. This year’s Global SAFe Summit is nearly sold out, our event agenda is packed, and we’ve got.
Here’s video four in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core principles and practices of Agile Software Engineering (ASE). In this video, Ken Pugh, one of Lean-Agile thought leaders, talks about the principle of ‘testability.’ Testability is a key quality attribute of code. We want tests that are fast, repeatable, and that can be automated. To design the right tests, we need to consider context of the system (state) and identify the.
Video number three in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core practices and principles of Agile software engineering (ASE) is live—and all about flow. Flow is how we deliver value to the customer, and in the video, Lean-Agile thought leader Ken Pugh discusses how to accelerate flow in the Value Stream. The flow in delivering a feature to a customer involves several phases—decide to deliver the feature, analyze the feature’s requirements, design,.
Great news! We’ve launched the second video in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core practices and principles of Agile software engineering (ASE). Lean-Agile thought leader Ken Pugh discusses why and how to build in quality from the start. Namely, how to build the right thing and build the thing right using a test-first approach. Ken describes the two important concepts behind building the right thing. The first is the minimum marketable.
Our latest course, Agile Product and Solution Management (APSM), marries the power of Design Thinking to develop innovative solutions with proven SAFe® capabilities to execute on those visions. And we’re thrilled to announce that registration is open for the first teach, happening August 13 – 15 in Boulder, Colorado. Product management is at the heart of almost every business. From building the right products, getting them off the shelf, exploring new markets, and ensuring financial.
In just over two weeks, many of us at Scaled Agile are headed to Washington, D.C. to engage with the community at Agile 2019. This year’s theme revolves around applying Agile knowledge to boost business value and efficiency. I’d like to personally invite you to visit us at the Scaled Agile booth and attend our presentations on a variety of topics that explore some of the most pressing issues facing today’s enterprise. Here’s a link.
New partner type—Global Transformation Partner—supports globally distributed and highly complex transformation journeys
While the SAFe knowledge base is freely available, it doesn’t implement itself. We provide abundant tactical guidance—such as the SAFe Implementation Roadmap—but there are aspects to large-scale transformations that unquestionably need the steady hands of seasoned experts. There you have the basis for the Scaled Agile Partner Program. When we launched the program in 2013 with a handful of Partners, businesses were mostly applying SAFe in isolated units. As they saw results they began extending.
