    7. 7. What we will cover today • An introduction to some of the SAFe® Portfolio concepts • An example of how you can setup JIRA Agile to support the SAFe® levels (Portfolio, Program, Team) • Note: There are multiple ways this can be done, we are showing one example, but we have a number of other solutions which we’ve implemented for Clients • We will spend most of our time in Portfolio & Program levels • Given the high-attendance, we have made some basic assumptions that folks are familiar with the basics of SAFe® and JIRA, but we will briefly review those
    8. 8. A Few Logistics • Large-group, limited interaction and primarily one-way • Other online training, tailored demo’s, and public or private training options are more personalized and interactive if you want those • Questions can be addressed to me (Presenter) or our Moderator • Will try to address themes and patterns of questions where appropriate • Other feedback collected will be used for future blog posts, updates or input for future iterations of this presentation • Given the high-attendance, we may not get to your question during the webinar • We will do our best to answer those questions after the webinar
    9. 9. SAFeTM – The Big Picture
    10. 10. Two Types of SAFe Epics Business Epics: • Large chunks of scope • Customer-facing initiatives • Realize business benefits • Maintained in the Portfolio Backlog Architectural Epics: • Large chunks of scope • Technology initiatives • Realize technological change – performance and scalability – infrastructure obsolescence – integration • Maintained in the Portfolio Backlog
    11. 11. Business Epic Workflow Decision Points: • Validation of epic with a lightweight business case • Research & Analysis • Decision to go/no-go Process: • Kanban
    12. 12. Business Epic Workflow Funnel: • Identification of Business Epics takes place • Ideas are captured / discussed • No cost or value is assigned • Epics stated in any format – “Single sign on across all products” Backlog: • Queue of work that warrants further exploration • WIP Limits pace resources • Epic Owner is assigned to carry the scope through the system – rough sizing of effort – estimated potential / value
    13. 13. Business Epic Workflow Analysis: • Research & Analysis prior to implementation • Effort & Economic Impact are further defined – WSJF Prioritization – Decision Matrix • Lightweight Business Case Developed – Decision to go/no-go Implementation: • Business Epic has been approved • Awaits space to schedule to a release train • Epic can be further broken down to decentralize – Split epics
    14. 14. Let’s Visualize the (BE) Workflow Copyright © 2008-2013. Leffingwell, LLC.
    15. 15. Epic Implementation Granted Allocate Epic to Release Train: • Epic passes analysis queue • Ownership transferred to Program Level – Decentralized planning – Epic decomposed into features • Program backlog queue of features – WIP limits dictate capacity of the teams
    16. 16. Agile Release Trains Program Team: • 50-125 people – Teams of Agile teams • Dedicated to consistent development flow – Value / Investment theme focus – Release in sync on a fixed cadence PSI’s: • ~8-12 week increments • Ongoing Frequency & Sequencing – Define – Build – Test – Deliver • Scope is variable
    17. 17. Investment Themes A more holistic view: • Visualize your strategic intent – Portfolio backlog of initiatives • Investment themes are a capacity allocation – Budgeting – Resource Planning
