Building High Assurance Systems with SAFe 4.0
The larger debate is over. The benefits of team-level Agile are proven and the methods are now rapidly moving across the chasm to enterprises building ever-larger systems, with ever-increasing complexity. Many of these systems have an unacceptably high social or economic cost of failure.
In order to address development risk and to help assure compliance to internal and regulatory standards, these enterprises—medical equipment, avionics, financial services, automotive, defense and other—have traditionally built their quality management systems on stage-gated, waterfall development models. But these methods have not scaled to the increasingly competitive worldwide market, where time to market and cost of delay are critical, economic factors.
In this talk, Dean Leffingwell describes how enterprises can migrate from their existing methods to scaled Lean-Agile practices that dramatically improve the speed and quality of solution development, while still meeting the relevant quality and regulatory standards.
He’ll conclude with brief discussion about the critical role that leadership plays in driving the transformation.
