Agile has moved far beyond commercial software into the world’s largest enterprises and government agencies. We have scaling methods which can help launch vehicles into the atmosphere and beyond, yet traditional contract mindsets have put a drag on escape velocity. But there’s good news! We have agile explorers discovering the next frontier of contract agility. Join us for this Agile2015 session and enter the new era! This era includes the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®)
TRADITIONAL MODELS TO LEAN-AGILE APPROACHES
Fixed requirements, big up-front design, and gated processes have been the norm. The rationale seemed logical in the past. It would not make sense to award a contract or commit to a major development investment without knowing what the system is supposed to do, how much it costs, and when it will be completed. We assumed that complex systems could be fully defined before they were built, that requirements and solutions would not change, and that we could build it right the first time.
Traditional models exist but Lean-Agile contract approaches are gaining momentum in both the commercial and the U.S. Federal space. Find out more!
