Abstract: As organizations build and deploy ever-larger applications—in increasingly complex, connected, and unpredictable environments—systems engineers face even more significant challenges.

These solutions often require multi-year roadmaps, coordination of many teams and suppliers across organizational boundaries, meet regulatory compliance, and address hardware and other long lead-time items. 

This four-hour tutorial will discuss Lean-Agile practices from the SAFe framework that address these challenges.

Speaker Bio: Harry Koehnemann is a SAFe Fellow & Principal Consultant at Scaled Agile, Inc.

He has spent the past two decades helping cyber-physical system builders in aerospace, defense, automotive and other industries to adopt better engineering practices, including Lean, Agile, MBSE, requirements management, quality management, and the related activities necessary to support compliance.

Harry is a regular presenter on Lean-Agile topics and engineering practices at Agile, engineering, and government conferences.

Agenda Topics Include:

  • Continually refine system specifications
  • Apply multiple planning horizons
  • Architect for scale, modularity, releasability, and serviceability
