Radtac launches office in the US

Expanding our British roots into the US: Radtac launches office in the US

‘Radtac’ - if there’s an American way to say it, then please imagine it now. Why? Well, you might need it.

Because we’ve always loved our American cousins, we’ve decided there’s no better way of showing that, than by effectively marching in there. Ok, what we actually mean is by expanding across the pond.

You’ve read that right. As of now (well, actually a little while ago, but we’ve been busy debating ‘color’ and ‘colour’, ‘organisation’ and ‘organization’), British roots have extended to the United States of America.

 

At the moment, you can find us in the tech hotbed that is Silicon Valley, California, with our office located near San Francisco. Come say Hello if you’re around - we’ll treat you to some tea!

SAFe Practice Tips: CI/CD Part 1- Continuous integration

17-Apr-2018 12:19:37 SAFe How-To Agile IT CI/CD

 

 

*This post is part of the series ‘SAFe Practice Tips’, which aims to offer helpful advice to anyone using SAFe.

 

This is the first part to the CI/CD blog series where I discuss continuous integration, delivery & deployment, and the differences between them but also how they relate to one another. This blog will help with enabling a smooth continuous journey for your team. The first practice we discuss is Continuous integration.

 

Where do I start?

 

First of all, CI/CD is not one thing.  When people start using the term "CI/CD" they are merging different things together, and while they are related (you can't have CD without CI) they are quite different in scope.  The CD acronym further complicates things by being ambiguous (see below).

SAFe Practice Tips: Program Increment (PI) Planning Part 3

11-Apr-2018 11:10:00 SAFe How-To SAFe 4.5 PI Planning

*This post is part of the series ‘SAFe Practice Tips’, which aims to offer helpful advice to anyone using SAFe.

Here is the final part of the SAFe PI Planning Tips series where I discuss the Planning Retrospective. This is the final activity of the Program Increment (PI) Planning event. If you haven’t checked out our previous Tips of the SAFe Practice series you can check them out here: Part 1 and Part 2

 

“The RTE leads a brief retrospective for the PI planning event to capture what went well, what didn’t, and what can be done better next time.”  - Scaled Agile Framework

 

My experience with the PI is that, whilst energising and exhilarating, it also exhausting! By the time you get to the final confidence vote, people are ‘done’! They just want to get home.

*This post is part of the series ‘SAFe Practice Tips’, which aims to offer helpful advice to anyone using SAFe.

Here is the 2nd part of the SAFe® Practice Tips series, where I discuss Management Problem Solving, including thoughts from other SAFe practitioners. Also, I explain confidence voting and how the team can do this to help meet their objectives for the PI. If you haven’t checked out the previous parts of the series - read Tip 1 here and Tip 2 here.

 

As mentioned last time, PI Planning is essential to SAFe. If you are not doing PI Planning, you are not doing SAFe. These tips will enable you to do your PI planning in a better way.

SAFe Practice Tips: Program Increment (PI) Planning

26-Mar-2018 14:26:04 SAFe How-To SAFe 4.5 PI Planning

*This post is part of the series ‘SAFe Practice Tips’, which aims to offer helpful advice to anyone using SAFe.

As a SAFe® Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) I can’t remember how many PI Planning events I facilitated and attended last year. However, what I do know is that this is a seminal event in SAFe, which aims  to create alignment with the Teams, the Product Management, the Architects and Business Owners.

“Program Increment (PI) Planning is a cadence-based, face-to-face event that serves as the heartbeat of the Agile Release Train (ART), aligning all the teams on the ART to a shared mission and Vision.”

PI Planning is essential to SAFe - If you are not doing PI Planning, you are not doing SAFe.

Over the last 2 years, I have been experimenting with different techniques and practices which I thought I would share with you. The first one is regarding Business Context and Team Space
