New vlog series: Enabling technical agility in the Lean enterprise

Community News SAFe Updates

Using new skills, approaches, and technologies, organizations are delivering higher-quality software faster and more predictably. Scaled Agile’s new series of short videos will jump-start your understanding of the core practices and principles of Agile software engineering (ASE). Think of this video series as a guide to best practices in software development.

Lean-Agile thought leader Ken Pugh will cover topics that align with the Agile Software Engineering course, offering a sneak peek into key elements including: 

  1. What is ASE? – Introduction to Agile software engineering
  2. Principles and practices of built-in quality 
  3. Accelerating flow – The Value Stream
  4. Testability – A key quality
  5. Thinking test first – Shifting testing left
  6. Discovering story details – Scenarios
  7. Creating shared understanding with Behavior-Driven Development – The scenario becomes a test
  8. Communicating with models – Why? How?
  9. Building systems with code quality – Maintainability
  10. Building systems with design quality – Design to interfaces, not implementations
  11. Implementing with quality – Design with tests
  12. The rest of the story –  Brief insights into other practices 

In the introductory video for our new series, Ken Pugh answers the basic question, “What is ASE?” He outlines Lean-Agile principles and values that form the underlying basis of ASE.  

With many decades of software engineering experience and as co-creator of the Agile Software Engineering course, Ken is an expert at divulging its keys. Test-Driven Development, Behavior-Driven Development, Extreme Programming, and Interface-Oriented Design for microservices are among Ken’s areas of expertise. He has authored several books on these topics, and in this video series, you’ll get a condensed version.

Be sure to check back for the second video in the series, which will be all about built-in quality. Ken will share the principles and practices that support building the right thing, and building that thing right.
