Do you have highly functional scrum teams but are wondering how to get them to work in sync with each other, or wondering how get "start-up" efficiency in a large enterprise? Or maybe you just heard that the Scaled Agile Framework for the Enterprise (SAFe®) is gaining traction and you want to find out more about it. Before the year is out, we want to give you a primer on SAFe, so you can decide if it should be on your list of resolutions for the new year!
We continue to see that Agile and Scrum deliver value and are catching the eyes of leadership individuals. But how does a large enterprise thrive with a Scrum framework that was made for 5-9 individuals? SAFe has garnered a lot of attention as a potential framework for enterprises with large product teams (5 or more scrum teams on a product line). It calls for the overall alignment throughout the organization so that the Scrum teams making up a large product development team can deliver valuable, high quality product increments with transparency and technical excellence. The program execution is achieved by leveraging the existing Scrum Team practices and interfacing with the higher Program and Portfolio layers in the organization.
cPrime SAFe coach, Sri will provide an overview of the SAFe framework and show why it appeals not only to the engineers and architects, but also to the product management, customer support and the executive team.
Our modern world runs on software. In order to keep pace, we must build increasingly complex and sophisticated software systems. Doing so requires larger teams and continuously rethinking the methods and practices – part art, science, engineering, mathematics, social science – that we use to organize and manage these important activities. Our traditional methods of waterfall development and iterative and incremental development are not keeping pace with these increasing demands.The increasing use of agile development is helping the industry address some of these challenges. However, team level agility does not provide the global alignment needed to optimize outcomes and extend the benefits of agile to the largest enterprises. For that, we need more advanced thinking.The Scaled Agile Framework represents one such set of advances. It is offered in public facing form, so that every practitioner, team, program and enterprise can enjoy the benefits of delivering ever better software at an ever faster pace. Your users will surely appreciate the benefits, too, because better software makes the world a better place
Self organizing, technically excellent Agile teams delivering incremental value described in User Stories following the governance of vision and technical guidelines.
When you have multiple teams working on a larger solution, then need to scale that self organized Agile goodness across multiple teams. Program layer receives governance guidelines as well as producing them.FEATURESLet’s read the slide.
Plan on cadence. Develop on CadenceDeliver on Demand
That combination of teams and some people at the program layer (and maybe a few others as well) form the Agile Release Train.
Let’s kick it up a notch to the highest level – Portfolio – where programs are funded and aligned to the business strategy.EPICS
