Can you build high assurance systems in Agile? Can you upgrade aircrafts, develop head-mounted devices and design highly complex systems using lean principles?
Many have relegated Agile development to small software teams, but at Elbit we have taken the leap.
This talk will describe the journey we took from a few software teams doing scrum to whole solution lines build some of the world most advanced systems using Lean and Agile principles. We'll describe the challenges we faced in reorganizing around value, changing the roles and responsibilities of leaders and building a new culture of learning and excellence.

Lessons Learned from Your Experience:
  • • Agile works to build systems at scale in multidisciplinary teams
  • • Change is hard, for software engineers as well as hardware engineers
  • • Coaching is critical at all levels
  • • Process metrics and short term wins are essential
  • • Cooperation with both the business units and manufacturing is a key element in the success of Lean-Agile in systems
  • • Don’t forget the basics – lean principles
  • • Management support is not enough, management leadership is a must
