Standing Room Only for Dr. Jacobson's Keynote at Conference

On June 1st, Dr. Ivar Jacobson delivered a keynote address at the annual International Conference on Software Engineering. Ivar shared his views on the history of software engineering to date and where we need to go from here.

Presentation at CA World - November 2016

A new, cutting-edge approach can help you harness the principles of disparate software methodologies to accelerate adoption and deliver value. Essence, a modular standard created by the Object Management Group
and promulgated by SEMAT (Software Engineering Method and Theory), provides a method-agnostic, common language for re-using software practices. Companies using Essence have seen dramatic cost-savings, process
improvements and even new business creation. Essence enables configuration of the 17 best-known agile methodologies in the market into smaller, foundational atomic “bricks” of re-usable practices. Currently the CA
Technologies stack (CA PPM, Agile Central, CDM, Release Automation and Service Virtualization) is one of the unique environments that support all of these re-usable bricks of Agile practices.

Essentializing DSDM

A Joint Presentation from DSDM & IJI

The challenges for many organizations when adopting DSDM are around mind set change, awareness and communication. The Essence standard helps teams navigate through many of the complex challenges common in software development delivery from helping teams identify and engage with the right stakeholders at the right time in the right way, to making health and progress visible to all in a language that everyone can understand. The Essence standard is presented in a number of tools such as a deck of Alpha State Cards, which are a simple, easy way to track status of a software project and help plan next steps. Applying Alpha State Cards with the DSDM Framework helps portray the aforementioned and enable communication between team members.

WE HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS TO DO THINGS AND THAT'S OK!

Presentation & Speaking Notes - Ed Seymour, Cloud Domain Architect from Red Hat looks at how SEMAT helps Red Hat manage an assortment of approaches when working with varied and disparate clients; how it provides a consistent view across all projects irrespective of the approach taken, even if SEMAT was not considered during project initiation. Furthermore, he looks at how SEMAT is helping Red Hat patch the holes in existing approaches, and providing a framework for developing new practices to support evolving techniques, and emerging technologies.

The Perfect Foundation to Master the Art of Software Development

As with any new initiative people are struggling to see how it fits into the world and how it relates to all the other things going on. For example does it improve or replace their current ways of working. Is it something like lean that supports and furthers the aims of the Agile Movement, or is it something like waterfall planning that is in opposition to an agile approach?

The good news is that both Agile and SEMAT promote non-prescriptive value-based philosophies that encourage software development teams to select and use whatever practices best fit their context and, most importantly, continuously inspect, adapt and improve their way of working. In this keynote we will look at how these two initiatives complement one another, providing the perfect foundation for teams that want to master the art of software development.

How to Be Lean and Agile with Process, Checkpoints and Governance

Learn how to use simple cards and checklists to achieve lean governance for agile software development projects and programs. First presented as a webinar by Ian Spence on 23rd April 2014.

How to Remain Competitive by Becoming a Learning Organization

It's been said that the only real sustainable competitive advantage is an organization's ability to learn faster than the competition. Learn how in this webinar presented on June 18th by Brian Kerr of Ivar Jacobson International.

Use-Case 2.0 Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Spring 2015

In some cases user stories are enough, but not when the number of user stories begins to grow, or when you develop enterprise systems for banks, insurance, telecom operations, defense or other large scale or regulated industries. Practitioners gathered in Amsterdam in the spring of 2015 to learn how Use-Case 2.0 is the agile way of doing use cases. Presentations were made by Dr. Ivar Jacobson, NS (Dutch Railways) and Munich Re.
