Montreal Scaled Agile Meetup SAFe vs DAD

  2. 2. What is DAD? Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) is a set of strategies that support the full spectrum of delivery approaches, from waterfall to iterative, agile, and lean. It draws upon the full range of methodologies and practices that have evolved over the past 40 years. 2 XP AM Scrum SAFe Others UP Kanban Lean AD http://www.disciplinedagiledelivery.com/
  3. 3. What is SAFe? The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is a freely revealed knowledge base of proven, integrated patterns for enterprise-scale Lean-Agile development. It is scalable and modular, allowing each organization to apply it in a way that provides better business outcomes and happier, more engaged employees. 3http://scaledagileframework.com/

  13. 13. "We are often asked about the relationship between DAD and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). SAFe is an instance of a set of process decisions made for a specific approach to scaling. SAFe is prescriptive in many ways. For example it requires the use of multiple teams working in parallel as release trains with common cadences with regard to when their iterations start and end. It can in practice be quite difficult for a group of teams to be able to reliably deliver a given set of features on a common date. DAD suggests that the use of common cadences is a process choice, but does not prescribe it as the only reasonable strategy. And while multiple teams working in parallel may make sense, we have seen other patterns such as one large team, or a medium sized core team with several sub-teams work successfully." – Scott W. Ambler and Mark Lines Founders of Disciplined Agile Delivery 13 DAD on SAFe https://www.disciplinedagileconsortium.org/resources/documents/scalingagilesoftwaredevelopment.pdf
  14. 14. "Though (DAD) flexibility may be appreciated by those with a good understanding of agile, it might not provide enough guidance for those who are transitioning from traditional models. Marketplace adoption for DAD is slow compared with SAFe. And though DAD and SAFe are more complementary than competitive, due to the lack of specific guidance, experienced coaches and consultants are more likely needed to successfully implement DAD." – Yvette Francino 14 SAFe and DAD http://techbeacon.com/large-scale-agile-frameworks-compared-safe-vs-dad

  20. 20. #SAFeDT 20 Enterprise Agility Focus on Product complexity Focus on Product and Team complexity Enterprise Agility includes enteprise concerns like Portfolio management, Governance, Enterprise Architecture and Team Alignment.
  21. 21. #SAFeDT 21 Enterprise Agility challenges n How to keep team agility in a large structure? n Which enterprise agility framework should we adopt? n How to change the development process and framework while respecting organizational culture? Scrum relies on self-commitment, self-organization, and emergence rather than authoritarian measures. —Ken Schwaber
  22. 22. #SAFeDT 22 Agile @ Scale Offering
  23. 23. #SAFeDT Put brutally SAFe seemed to be PRINCE II camouflaged in Agile language. SCRUM as an approach was emasculated in a small box to the bottom right of a hugely overcomplicated linear model. (…) SAFe is not only a betrayal of the promise offered by AGILE but is a massive retrograde step giving the managerial class an excuse to avoid any significant change. [A Body of knowledge] is an highly static non- adaptive approach. Dave Snowden (Cynefin) 23 SAFe I saw a Release Planning session with 20some teams and almost 200 people, and realized how SAFe is Scrum, just expanded to the program level. I became aware that Scrum itself scales beautifully. Lyssa Adkins (Coaching Agile Teams) SAFe gives us some good ideas for how to deal with [enterprise] complexities where few existed before. I am using some elements of SAFe with a client right now but not all since some of the techniques would not work well, which is consistent with a “pragmatic agile” approach. Mark Lines (DAD) The boys from RUP (Rational Unified Process) are back. Building on the profound failure of RUP, they are now pushing the Scaled Agile Framework (e) as a simple, one-size fits all approach to the agile organization. Ken Schwaber (Scrum) Quoting Martin Fowler
