Many organizations applying SAFe build large systems that include hardware. Yet there is little guidance on how DevOps’ software-centric practices can be used by the people who build significant cyber-physical systems, those containing computers, mechanical devices, electronics, optics, fluidics, motors, propulsion, and more. I wanted to update everyone on two activities underway that are helping to address this need. The first is the Industrial DevOps work going on at IT Revolutions within their DevOps Enterprise.
Hi all. As you know, the DevSecOps mindset, culture, and technical practices are critical for business agility and overall organizational success. SAFe provides guidance to organize around value, improve quality, build a continuous delivery pipeline, and reduce lead time. Now Peter Vollmer, SAFe SPCT and Distinguished Technologist at Micro Focus, has provided a new advanced topic article with deep, practical advice on how to succeed with your DevOps implementation at enterprise scale with a ‘software.
Hi Folks, Our first virtual SAFe Summit is just around the corner and there are only a few more days left to register. Previous attendees have told us that bringing the community together is an important aspect of a SAFe Summit, and we have worked hard to recreate these interactions in a virtual environment. There will be numerous opportunities to network, chat with other attendees, and ask questions. There will be an interactive lobby with.
By now we’ve all felt the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having around the world. Over the last few months we’ve adjusted to a different sort of life. Those of us with the option to work remotely have had to adapt to new challenges: staying engaged on video calls, managing wonky internet connections, or trying to read our colleagues’ emotions through chat emojis instead of across a conference table. Fortunately Agile principles give us guidance.
The eighth episode of Mik + One, the Project To Product podcast hosted by Tasktop Founder & CEO, Dr. Mik Kersten, is now live! In this episode, I join Mik to talk about all things Project to Product and SAFe. While Mik and I could talk for hours, and we occasionally do, you’ll be happy to note that this podcast is less than an hour. In it, we cover: SAFe 5.0 and the importance of.
Hi Folks, On April 26 I joined Andrew Leff, Chris Murman, and Troy Lightfoot from Agile Uprising for an episode of their “Business Agility” podcast. They asked terrific questions and our conversation covered a range of topics—here’s a preview of what we discussed. Our reaction at Scaled Agile, Inc. to the coronavirus crisis. I shared how it accelerated our roadmap, what it was like to do all-remote PI Planning, and the next phase of our work.
Hi Folks, It’s obvious to us all that one of the challenges caused by COVID-19 is that many organizations have found themselves, almost overnight, managing a completely remote workforce. For many this is a profound change in the way they work. Even for those who’ve experienced remote working, this is an extreme situation where every employee is required to work from a different location. What has emerged, however, is confirmation that—given the right environment—remote Agile.
Hi Folks, The goal of SAFe 5.0 is clear: achieving a state of Business Agility across the enterprise. The seven core competencies of Business Agility describe the practices in support of this goal, and the implementation roadmap provides a blueprint for the journey ahead. But change of any kind is never a linear path—it requires constant reflection on the steps taken previously and an ability to adapt plans based on the results achieved. Indeed, we.
If you’re practicing SAFe then you know it’s designed to help you plan for and manage change. Changing requirements are a fundamental tenet of Agile. Managing variability is a core SAFe principle. But lately the way we work has changed, too. Almost overnight the world’s priorities have shifted. Most of us now are working, teaching, and collaborating remotely, using digital methods for delivering customer value because face-to-face isn’t an option. Some organizations have been forced.
Hi folks. As you all know, Agile principles and practices originated in software decades ago. And as software teams began to see success with these practices, others within their organization, including hardware teams, took notice and started applying them in their specific context. Cindy VanEpps (SAFe SPCT) and the rest of the team at 321 Gang have spent many years with organizations in aerospace, defense, automotive, medical devices, and others helping them apply Lean-Agile practices.
