Keeping it Lightweight: Scaling Agile the Easy Way

Wednesday, November 9, 2022 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Far too many scaling concepts require tremendous overhead and turn into something more lightweight than their original intention out of necessity. How can we keep from having to go backwards in out scaling and maintain a lightweight approach from the start? Using [email protected] as the initial framework, many organizations can simply keep their known structures while enjoying increased collaboration and speed to decision-making. As part of this session, attendees will enjoy hearing about how they can start out a scaled Agile approach the easy way while also taking a potentially bulky approach...

Taking Great Measures - Quit Measuring and Start Influencing

Wednesday, November 9, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Using metrics in agile has been an elusive endeavor, and how to use those metrics for good, not evil. Too often we see metrics used to compare agile teams, and question the wrong things.

Through interviews and a focus on educating different levels of business and IT leaders, we were...

Model-Based Systems Engineering helps to frame the architectural underpinnings of a system, tying the implementation back to desired functionality, but when allowed to go stale, the models can quickly lose their benefit and turn the initial modeling effort into waste. Agile and MBSE are sometimes viewed as competing approaches, when in fact they can be used synergistically to support each other....


Highly Regulated Industries - Are Agile Approaches Even Possible?

Thursday, November 10, 2022 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Agile approaches have become mainstream in the 20ish years since the manifesto, but many transformation efforts fail or aren't even considered possible, in highly regulated environments. Financial services, insurance, healthcare, and others have necessary constraints in the development and delivery of products and services. These constraints are often considered insurmountable in the context of agile development and delivery, and traditional, legacy waterfall methods are chosen. Other pseudo-agile approaches are also used, often using the language of agile but violating its core...
