Lean Agile principles of SAFe

The scaled agile framework (SAFe) is a set of organization and workflow patterns intended to guide enterprises in scaling lean and agile practices. SAFe promotes alignment, collaboration, and delivery across large numbers of agile teams. It was
developed by and for practitioners, by leveraging three primary bodies of knowledge: agile software development, lean product development, and systems thinking.

Jesper will dive into the ten lean agile principles and show us how it all works together.

Jesper Hoffstedt is a senior Lean Agile coach and trainer with more than 20 years experience of Agile software delivery in industries like retail, telco, online betting and in the public sector. With a background as developer and solution architect Jesper Hoffstedt has his roots in Agile craftsmanship. After 10 years of passionate software development Jesper has been focused on leading change by coaching organizations to take on a Lean Agile mindset and practices that stimulates quality, engagement and a continuous flow of value. The last four years has been spent on coaching and driving a large Agile transformation within the public sector. With a pedagogic mindset, prestige less attitude and focus on the participant’s environment Jesper is a highly appreciated teacher.

The Concept Paper: a Quick Start Guide to Defining Project Requirements

This session will introduce the LPPD technique of the Concept Paper. This document is the summation of the “study period” in LPPD. The Chief Engineer and a small cross-functional team expend substantial effort, typically over a period of months, to define the requirements of the project. The Concept Paper is the essential guide for the project that can enable effective and efficient development. As applied in LPPD the Concept Paper has several useful features not common in other Project Requirements documents. In this session we will identify the importance of the Concept Paper in development, briefly outline the contents of the Concept Paper, and provide guidance on how to complete its several sections using an example.

Larry Navarre is a full-time Lecturer at Kettering University teaching courses in innovation development, supply chain management, project management, and business analytics since 2008.  Larry has earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Kent State University (Kent, Ohio) and a Master of Science in Management degree from Purdue University's Krannert Graduate School of Management (West Lafayette, Indiana).  Larry has 20 years of management experience in the steel, machinery, and plastics industries.  His management responsibilities have spanned from Production Supervisor to Director of Global Product Management and Asian Operations.  He has worked internationally with customers, suppliers, and colleagues in 20 countries.  Larry is also a managing owner of two family-owned small businesses managing commercial real estate.

Injecting Knowledge Into Innovation by Design

Injecting knowledge into innovation is easier said than done. Practice shows us that sometimes the development of new products faces major hiccups, even if knowledge management software is used and technical experts put their tacit knowledge on paper. Understanding the working environment and the company culture becomes crucial to achieving significant and sustained business benefits. How are the technical side and the people side come together in designing the future state of the development process? This is the question Oviwill answer during the session.

Ovidiu Contras, Ovi, is a Lean Coach and author of “Navigating the Lean Transformation”, book covering some of his personal experiences in Lean transformation efforts, as a continuous improvement employee. His career started as a design engineer for high temperatures industrial equipment. Since 2000 he is actively involved in Lean Transformation efforts as Lean Black Belt, Continuous Improvement Manager, Kaizen Promotion Officer or Lean Coach. Ovi’sexperience covers all the business aspects, from developing new products to servicing them, including the support functions like Finance, IT, HR… working for companies in Aerospace, Consumer Goods and Research & Development. Oviis specialized in the application of Lean principles in  complicated multifunctional environments where the product is hard to see, and the work is non repetitive.

Winning Innovation - The Book

Norbert will present his brand-new book, Winning Innovation. A story of transformation, Winning Innovation illustrates a company-wide transformation of a magnitude that only superior R&D can make possible. It introduces principles for an innovation excellence transformation along with the parallel people transformation that is necessary for real change to occur. The result is a new culture based on respect and humility; highly efficient processes that deliver a wealth of innovations, sales, and profits for many years to come; and an owner who leaves a bright future for the people and company he’s known and loved his entire life.
