Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 18, 2015
321 Gang, Inc. announced today that it is now a Scaled Agile Inc. (SAI) Gold SPCT Partner, and that 321 Gang Director of Technology, Harry Koehnemann, Ph.D., a contributor to the SAFe Lean Systems Engineering Principles, has achieved the elite designation of SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT).
“Gold SPCT is the highest certification level available from SAI and showcases the commitment 321Gang has made to SAFe. We’re very excited to have 321 Gang on board,” said Dean Leffingwell, Chief Methodologist and creator of SAFe. “321 Gang has worked very closely with the Scaled Agile team on development of the SAFe for Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) framework, which has been incorporated into SAFe 4.0 for Lean Software and Systems Engineering. The 321 Gang consultants are experts in complex systems and software engineering, and are a great addition to our growing partner community.”
The Scaled Agile Framework is a proven, publicly-accessible knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale, consisting of approximately 300 pages of guidance. Its primary interface is the SAFe “Big Picture” graphic which highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale agile from the team, to teams of teams, to the enterprise level. It has been successfully applied in programs ranging from only 50-100 people to enterprises employing thousands of software and systems engineers.
Many of 321 Gang’s clients manage complex environments in highly regulated industries. As both training and service providers, 321 Gang’s consultants work with these large, system-driven enterprises by guiding them through successful implementations of SAFe. Harry Koehnemann, Director of Technology for 321 Gang, says, “The enterprises we have worked with to implement SAFe have found that it delivers significant value by reducing rework and waste while ensuring regulatory compliance. These clients report that their teams and programs are aligned better thus allowing them to more efficiently deliver higher quality solutions.”
“321 Gang is our top partner in the systems space,” says Francis Kelly, SAI’s VP of Partner Development. “Their expertise in this market makes them uniquely qualified to help enterprises in regulated industries apply Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) and software development principles using SAFe.”
