Portfolio SAFe Updates

“The Lean Portfolio Management course was incredibly useful for our implementation of SAFe at Travelport. The format and structure of the course enabled us to create our LPM implementation roadmap, and leave with next steps clearly articulated and actionable. I highly recommend this course for any organization implementing Lean portfolio management practices at scale.” —Hilla Knapke, Director, APMO and SAFe Enterprise Transformation, Travelport Following several test runs of the course and a successful and sold-out first.

New partner type—Global Transformation Partner—supports globally distributed and highly complex transformation journeys

Community News Partners

While the SAFe knowledge base is freely available, it doesn’t implement itself. We provide abundant tactical guidance—such as the SAFe Implementation Roadmap—but there are aspects to large-scale transformations that unquestionably need the steady hands of seasoned experts. There you have the basis for the Scaled Agile Partner Program. When we launched the program in 2013 with a handful of Partners, businesses were mostly applying SAFe in isolated units. As they saw results they began extending.

Dutch Tax and Customs Administration speeds delivery by 3X while transforming long-established culture

Case Studies

“We are delivering faster and more predictably than in the past, which has changed many minds and driven a shift in long-ingrained ways of working.” —Mark Braam, IT Manager/RTE, Interaction Services at DTCA Behind every SAFe transformation, there’s a corresponding cultural shift. And there’s perhaps no environment where that’s tougher to change than in government. That’s what makes our latest case study so impactful. The Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (DTCA) has typically been very.

Insights on the state of business agility in the SAFe world

SAFe Updates

At the recent 2019 European SAFe® Summit, we did something we’ve never done before – we used the event to live-capture baseline metrics to determine how close organizations are to achieving true business (not just technical) agility. After Dean’s keynote presentation, we invited attendees to take a survey about business agility—and 164 of them did. To understand where the respondents were coming from, we included two questions about company size and the size of their.

Farewell, Martin Burns.

Farewell, Martin Burns.

Community News

Recently, the SAFe community, and indeed the entire Agile movement, lost a dear friend and champion. Coach, collaborator, big thinker, and host extraordinaire—I knew Martin Burns to be a truly independent, non-partisan, and deeply thoughtful industry leader. Martin believed in SAFe, passionately, and was a follower of the Framework from its earliest days. In 2013, he attended an SPC class I taught in London where he brought an expansive view of agility, and inherently understood.

Humbled. Inspired. Energized. Every time I come back from a SAFe Summit, I feel all of these things. And I can tell you why in just one sentence: SAFe companies are changing the world, one PI at a time. Just the week before last at the 2019 European SAFe Summit, we all learned how teams on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Project are using SAFe to build the world’s largest radio telescope to explore the.

Updated Principle #1 – Take an economic view

Updated Principle #1 – Take an economic view

SAFe Updates

Our thinking on the Economic Framework evolved quite a bit with the release of SAFe 4.6. Specifically, we added lean budget guardrails and some more clarity around how both WSJF and Suppliers are material to economic decision-making. In 4.6, we reflected that in a complete rewrite of the article attached to the icon.  However, although it applies at all levels, that icon is physically located only on the large solution level, which not everyone uses. We.

SAFe® for Government 4.6.1 released!

SAFe® for Government 4.6.1 released!

SAFe Updates

Last October, we released the first SAFe® for Government course with an initial MVP design focused on the U.S. federal market. Even before the course launched, we began getting feedback from our SPCs working with governments outside the U.S., as well as interest from state governments. While most of the course content works fine in those contexts, some of the information specific to U.S. federal is not as useful there. The big question was how.
