Thousands of books have been written about agile software development since the release of The Agile Manifesto back in 2001. Putting it into practice and scaling it for enterprises, however, has been challenging. On a smaller scale, teams that could meet up daily or co-work saw success. But this face-to-face approach hit a wall when team members were remote.
Back in 2006, the founders of Bluescape recognized the need for a collaboration tool that went far beyond screens and sound. They developed technology that allowed teams to accomplish the tasks of process management and workflow automation as if they were in the same room – even when they couldn’t be.
In 2011, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) started releasing frameworks that assist larger organizations in deploying agile methodologies. Bluescape works well with the principles of SAFe and has developed templates that help teams establish, then accel, their agile processes.
During the interview, Norm Litterini describes how Bluescape has been used as a successful platform for software development – and so much more. Its common operating tools unite groups by enhancing data sharing, coordination, and communication for software development, crisis response, or cross-functional planning use cases. And, because Bluescape is FedRAMP and IL4 / IL5 compliant, federal systems managers can rely on the platform for secure operations.
