PEDCO is a very open and friendly company, whose huge experience in process engineering and SAFe resulted in great product which combines the latest trends in process engineering with ease of practical appliance on a big scale. To improve the thinking process, practicing running in the morning can help. Listening to webinars while running can feed the thinking process.

My first familiarity with PEDCO has begun from “SAFe in Stages” webinar on one of such runs. The second was conversations with Peter and meetings for the Quality Management training in Zurich. The future opens new opportunities for continuous improvement of everyone involved using the trusted methods and platform.  The Applied SAFe is a good example of how the model-based process engineering can help with the practical deployment of the process for the teams even in very complex and regulated environments. The visualization framework brings the process acceptance and improvement on the new level, which can be beneficial for customers aiming digital transformation at a scale.”

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.

Dr. Dirk Meißner, Managing Partner, CO-Improve GmbH

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.

Dr. Marion Lempets, Managing Partner, Softcomply
“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. 

Tool follows process… We are looking forward to leverage this approach together in this new partnership.PEDCO has put many man-years of experience in the Applied SAFe Process framework and the approach to introduce this in an organization.
This partnership will shorten the introduction of process and tools, so engineers can concentrate on creating value.
