Workshop Lean-Agile Process Engineering 2017-07-24T15:26:24+00:00

Lean-Agile Process Engineering Workshop

This two-day workshop will discuss concepts, risks and possible solutions on how to organize, design, process and manage process engineering in an agile environment. As it is stated in the agile manifesto: ‘individuals and interactions over processes and tools.’; in large scale companies building the most important systems, people, knowledge and auditable processes are usually a given and a prerequisite to even stay in business.

This leads us to a lot of new questions:

  • What does that mean for companies going towards agile or scaled agility?
  • How can processes be agile and be mixed with other development life cycles (e.g. Waterfall)?
  • How can process engineering be adapted so that it supports agile aspects and communities?
  • What does it need to implement ‘Relentless Improvement’ as stated in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)?
  • How must process engineering itself be organised so that it can  support the tearing pace of Industry 4.0?
  • What does it need to deal with Technical Debt, increased Complexity and Dependencies of cyber-physical Systems?
  • How to integrate existing process assets (like SOP’s) to achieve processes, that support your company towards scaled agility?

Learn and discuss on how to systematically reach lean-agile process engineering. The goal is to achieve processes, helping system and software-dependent enterprises to achieve better business outcomes, increase employee engagement, improve economics and to support your company’s journey towards scaled agility.


  • Quality Assurance, Process Leads and Engineers

Learning Objectives

After this workshop, you should be able to:

  • Discuss different strategies on how to perform process engineering in lean-agile system development
  • Argue on conceptual solutions on how to sustain lean process engineering; in the long and short term
  • How to achieve relentless improvement  as stated in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
  • Discuss different strategies on how to mix/coexist of different development life cycles like agile, scaled agility, waterfall, iterative, DAD (Disciplined Agile Delivery.
  • Assess your own existing process engineering
  • Argue on conceptual solutions to integrate existing process assets (Milestones, Phases, Specifications, Documentation, Audits, Verification & Validation) with needs of agile processes.
  • Increase your change and adoption speed within given boundaries
  • Assess one of the possible solutions as given by Applied SAFe
