Event Description

Mona Roccia ( whose certs include SPC4 )

talked about Implementing Large Scale SAFe in a  Highly Controlled Financial Environment

Slides are here Scaled.Agile.Transformation.Presentation.21.Feb.2017.pdf

but the real value of the night was the back and forth with the audience to gain insight into the difficult regimen that is Scaling Agile.


For more info about Mona Roccia



Financial companies are regulated as no others.  And their dependence on IT services is unbelievable.  So what are the management challenges of this environment, and what are the tools to meet them ?  How does SAFe ( Scaled Agile Framework ) address and fit in this environment?

Mona Roccia knows.

Local investment company SEI Investments is undergoing system modifications, hardware infrastructure changes and exploding growth.  How do these factors affect the almost overwhelming task of keeping software projects on track ?


Location is Frontline Education ( Remember, it is the driveway AFTER the PA Turnpike if going North on Rte 29 )

John still can't find it.  Could you post the actual page for frontline directions?

Comment by John Voris, Lead Coordinator on January 23, 2017 at 10:57am

The address and directions for Frontline (and all our usual meeting spots ) can be found on the website.  Under the Menu Events and Directions are the Upcoming Events = Western Suburbs and Downtown and crossposted events of other sister groups.  There is a page of more detailed directions on how the best driving directions.  For anyone coming from Bucks County or Jersey, I would normally recommend the PA Turnpike and get off at the new Malvern Exit ( slip lane for EZPass customers only ) BUT Jersey people !  - with the closing of the PA Turnpike Bridge, there may be some adjustments to use other bridges and I-95 to Woodhaven Road to US-Rte-1 to PA Turnpike.
