Foundations of the Scaled Agile Framework

(Note: This is a webinar that will be shown at Farm Credit.  Please join us for a meal and show!)

Scrum, XP, Kanban and related methods have been proven to provide step changes in productivity and quality for software teams. However, these methods do not have the native constructs necessary to scale to the enterprise. What the industry needs is a solution that moves from a set of simplistic, disparate, development-centric methods, to a scalable, unified approach that addresses the complex constructs and additional stakeholders in the organization—and enables realization of enterprise-class product or service initiatives via aligned and cooperative solution development.

In this webinar, Alex Yakyma describes how to Be Agile-Scale Up-Stay Lean and Have more Fun with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), a publicly–accessible knowledge base of proven Lean and Agile practices for enterprise-class software development. He approaches the problem from the perspectives of Lean thinking and principles of product development flow, illustrating how these core principles help deliver business results at scale, while keeping the development system—and the enterprise—lean and able to respond rapidly to changing market needs. In addition, enterprises applying the framework have been getting better results, and since winning is more fun, Alex will also describe some of the positive changes to corporate culture that occur when an enterprise is experiencing success with scaled Lean and Agile methods.

Audience: Managers, Executives, Developers, Testers, Product Managers, Product Owners, Development Managers, Scrum Masters, and anyone who is developing or driving software in the enterprise.
