Hi Folks, With SAFe 5.0, we extended SAFe guidance from the realm of pure tech teams to other teams critical to the building and support of innovative businesses solutions. Real business agility demands this. To that end, we’ve been working with a number of enterprises to better understand how to integrate marketing with their SAFe implementations. In addition, as I think that we’ve noted previously, we run our entire business on SAFe and marketing has.
Video nine in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core principles and practices of Agile software engineering (ASE) is all about code quality. Ken Pugh, one of our Lean-Agile thought leaders, shares wisdom about what makes good code and how to avoid some common pitfalls. The goal is maintainability—the ease with which you can go from the as-is to the to-be state. So, what makes for easily maintainable code? Ken talks about.
Welcome to video eight in our series designed to jump-start your understanding of the core principles and practices of Agile Software Engineering (ASE). In this vlog, Ken Pugh, one of our Lean-Agile thought leaders, talks about effective communication with models. Models create common understanding and alignment on what a system will do, primarily by providing a common vocabulary, overall architecture, and domain terminology. In this video, Ken introduces two kinds of models (static models and.
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’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.
Gone are the days when companies had the luxury of long delivery cycles to get everything right. Now, organizations have to predictably and quickly get new functionality in customers’ hands, or risk not being able to adapt to changing markets. This is true for all businesses, including those building the world’s biggest and most complex systems. And they’re turning to Lean systems Engineering practices to take advantage of frequent product release cycles that provide fast.
Hello, When we recently announced SAFe® 4.6, we introduced the Five Core Competencies of the Lean Enterprise. These are: Lean-Agile Leadership Team and Technical Agility DevOps and Release on Demand Business Solutions and Lean Systems Engineering Lean Portfolio Management These competencies describe the knowledge, skills, and mindset that enable an organization to operate in a truly Lean fashion and better navigate the complex challenges of digital disruption. You can read about each competency in more.
Hi Folks, The SAFe knowledge base is an invaluable resource for people who build software and systems, however, navigating the guidance can be daunting for the uninitiated. SAFe is a robust framework supported by hundreds of web pages. Where do you start? In what order should you read the articles? What information is really important to you and when? We get it. There’s a Wikipedia aspect to the SAFe body of knowledge that takes time.
