We help your organisation in the set-up, selection, operation and further development of lean and effective processes. This allows you to direct your processes in compliance with the defined product and process guidelines, efficiently and with transparent costs.
To achieve these results we offer the following three complementary services and solutions:
We support you in the assessment, creation, evolution, measurement of your processes. One of our core competences is the change to lean and agile methodologies in large organizations, for complex product lines or in the context of regulatory compliance. Additionally we offer to operate your Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG) as an outsourced service – move those activities into our responsibility. Our managed process services can also be combined with our product Applied SAFe.
Benefit from a high class process engineering just as a large scale company, but far more cost efficient and agile.
Applied SAFe® is a fully fledged ALM tool agnostic and officially approved implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) as a process model. It serves as your own comprehensive, customizable and executable instance of SAFe®. Our unique product includes roles, processes, activities, artifacts, practices, templates, guidelines, milestones, phases, metrics and tailoring needed to bring the framework to life. Applied SAFe creates a dynamic where you can author your entire process, instantiate to your community and ensure that you have the best and most compliant process for your organization.
Our training objective is primary to increase your capability in the effective application of scaled agility or lean over the whole enterprise. We focus on leadership training based on SAFe® for the management, portfolio steering and product line development and its successful change approach. Specific training for the usage of Applied SAFe®, our tool supported platform for light-weight achievements of regulatory compliance in the agile context, complement the training portfolio. Therefore, we also train your own process engineering team to perform independently those services for your enterprise.
“This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to exploring new entry points and approaches to adopting the Scaled Agile Framework®,” said Dean Leffingwell, Chief Methodologist and creator of the Scaled Agile Framework. “We are pleased to be working with such outstanding innovators as PEDCO’s Peter Pedross and his team. The potential to help ease the way for fully comprehensive SAFe adoption is enormous.”
Implementing scaled agile organizations in regulated environment always means to define and to track agile processes. Applied SAFe is a very valuable tool for an agile transition project in such an environment. You need less time and less investment in work to be able to implement a complete agile standard process.
“With PEDCO and SAI we have found exactly the right collaboration partners. The excellent process expertise of the PEDCO team combined with SAI’s market leading Scaled Agile Framework® gives our customers a way of integrating agile practices into their current process landscape and become more efficient without having to start from scratch.” says Erich Meier, Method Park’s CTO and creator of the Stages process management tool.
“It is exciting to see PEDCO’s Applied SAFe® come to life as a sophisticated, enterprise-ready solution for organizations wanting to adapt SAFe to their context and accelerate better business outcomes. We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the outstanding innovators at PEDCO on this important contribution to the SAFe community. The potential to help ease the way for fully comprehensive SAFe adoption is enormous.”
The SAFe® collaboration program allows us to partner with companies like PEDCO who have demonstrated superior capabilities in managed process services,” said Francis Kelly, Scaled Agile’s VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “By leveraging their upcoming Applied SAFe process model with the SAFe methodology, PEDCO is well positioned to support enterprises seeking to customize and accelerate adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework.
The Scaled Agile Framework® was our natural choice to bring agile on a level to support enterprises seeking to customize and accelerate adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework,” said Peter Pedross, PEDCO’s CEO. “The SAFe® Inside program allows us to combine the power of SAFe® with our own knowledge on process modelling into a strong product.
“We truly understand the challenges faced by our clients when implementing SAFe, particularly for those operating in regulated industries. By working in partnership, PEDCO and Blue Agility are uniquely positioned to provide customized and comprehensive enterprise-ready solutions for organizations wanting to adapt SAFe to their context. With PEDCO’s Applied SAFe, the potential to smooth the path to a full SAFe adoption that ultimately translates to high business value and customer delight is substantial.”
“It is not enough that management commit themselves to quality and productivity, they must know what it is they must do. Such a responsibility cannot be delegated.” This quote from W. Edwards Deming accompanies me wherever I help companies to become more agile. Applied SAFe is an extraordinary tool doing exactly that: In a clear and precise way helping the people responsible to make a change to know what it is they must do.
“We are very excited to join PEDCO in a collaborating partnership. PEDCO’s Applied SAFe® is an outstanding product and we feel that every SAFe customer will love the guidance, metrics and lean governance process that it provides.”
“Applied SAFe® elevates the core of enterprise agility predicated on the key premise of synchronization to an entirely new level. With UFG’s current business model squarely based on fostering comprehensive enterprise agility, this partnership is destined to garner powerful, compliance ready, end-to-end agile transformation solutions.”
“We are excited about partnering with PEDCO and about linking AgilityHealth with Applied SAFe, so we can now offer AgilityHealth customers who want to scale using SAFe a seamless solution which combines the strengths of both platforms. AgilityHealth and Applied SAFe are both configurable and can be tailored to meet the needs of any organization; from a transformational perspective as well as from a process perspective. The combination of both platforms ensures we can help further drive continuous growth and produce measurable business outcomes based on metrics unique to our customers.”
Regulatory environments discouraged many companies from the manufacturing industries to start an agile transformation process. With Applied SAFe these companies can not only prove that the development of complex physical products using SAFe still meets all regulatory requirements but also have a very performant tool to support a sustainable SAFe implementation.
Medical device companies are often overwhelmed with regulatory requirements for their complex devices. With Applied SAFe these companies can not only prove that the development of complex physical products using SAFe still meets all regulatory requirements but also have a very performant tool to support a sustainable SAFe implementation. Together with our products, customers will almost immediately be able to develop medical device products.
“When Peter presented PEDCO’s Applied SAFE demo I immediately realized the potential and benefit for companies. This product uniquely combines process modelling with a state of the art solution for scaling agile. That’s why I accepted to be a member of the PEDCO Advisory Board.As co-author of the TIR45 ‘Guidance on the use of AGILE practices in the development of medical device software’ I want to stress that agile definitely can be used for the development of medical device software and does bring value by enhancing customer focus and efficiency. “
