Our training on agile development for critical systems shows hands-on how to produce working products in much shorter periods of time, with less defects, in a collaborative environment with customer focus, engineers, and management. Our focus on lean AND agile emphasizes the need to be flexible and at the same time optimize value.

Taught by professional instructors who exactly know lean and agile practices from many client projects, our training differs from other courses with its focus on critical products, such as automotive, medical and aerospace. Our hands-on simulations and examples show how to practically apply the knowledge learned about Agile development.

  • Foundations of agile development
  • Methodologies, such as Scrum, Cyrstal, Feature-driven Development, Kanban
  • Applying lean and agile in safety-critical and regulated infrastructures, such as automotive, medical and aerospace
  • User stories for customer requirements, release planning and sprint planning with user stories and estimating techniques
  • Agile project management: Demonstrate the current status of the project through the use of such artifacts as the kanban board and burn-down charts
  • Manage a Lean Agile development team through a sprint - from requirements gathering through product demonstration
  • Merging lean and agile practices for more efficient development
  • Agile development in the contact of functional safety standards, such as ISO 26262, ISO 25119 and IEC 61508
  • Change management and the lean transformation: Making it happen
  • Metrics for agile projects and ROI
  • Practical guidance and case studies from our client projects
