Drew met Dean Leffingwell, creator of the Framework, in early 2009 when he was developing a scaled Agile methodology for a management consulting company to bridge their strategic business framework with Agile. Since then, they have worked together with global clients to synchronize distributed teams using the Agile Release Train in the U.S., Europe, and India.

    For anybody interested in the cultural "triangle" that we talked about last night during the report out on distributed teams/organizations, please look up the Lewis Model of Culture ( I was first introduced to this model via a recorded presentation by Valerie Berset-Price from the 2013 Pacific NW Software Quality Conference (

    Amazing, informative presentation, Drew! Thank you! (And the 10min, 8-slide overview of SAFe was helpful. Please let us know when there was a video of it.) Thank you, again!

    I would love to go, but March 17th is St. Patrick's day...

    I live this framework every day using several different software packages: one for portfolios (excel), one for projects (P6 EPPM), one for tasks (Prolog), one for earned value (EcoSys), one for accounting (JDE E1), one for reporting, team sites, KPIs,etc. (SharePoint). It's all the same to me. So much data entry and interfaces and no one able to see the big picture and drill up/down through the data. Lol, so now we are building a data warehouse... I guess you could call it job security. I call it chaos.

      Wow, for all that spend can you talk your management into looking at an integrated package? Chances are you could save money in the long run.
