We reduced the time to take an idea to production, and our time-to-value has gone down using the SAFe® process. If reaching production would normally take 1½ years, now it could be eight months with the new processes and approach. —Hrishikesh Karekar, Lead Agile Coach Our latest case study comes to us from the Israel office of global IT powerhouse, Amdocs, where a team applied some creative tactics to take Agile successfully from theory to.
“Everyone hearing the same message from the same trainers at the same time was a huge enabler for alignment and a ‘one-team’ culture.” —Em Campbell-Pretty, Context Matters This latest case study comes to us from one of Australia’s big four banks, adding to a growing trend of financial and banking organizations turning to SAFe. When Westpac needed to add features to its online banking platform in a tight window, a SAFe Quickstart was the answer..
This latest case study from Cisco reveals some impressive results—40% defect reduction—from their first round with SAFe, plus a number of other benefits that have convinced their IT folks to integrate SAFe as a key part of their strategy to deliver customer value. Not bad for the largest networking company in the world. Working on the Cisco® Subscription Billing Platform (SPB), they launched three Agile Release Trains (ARTs) in 2015, and worked together to build.
“With a proven framework, we can deliver solutions much faster and with less effort. SAFe® defines the roles, teams, activities and artifacts to apply Lean and Agile principles at enterprise scale, and provides outstanding training and coaching materials to increase our chance of success.” —Peter Vollmer, Distinguished Technologist at HPE At the newly formed HPE, small steps were the key to Agile success. In the newly published HPE case study, you’ll find inspiration in.
We always like to hear about early wins from new adopters of the Framework, but of course the real test of any method lies in how well it serves an organization over time. SEI—a leading global provider of wealth management solutions—launched their first ART in early 2014, and saw some impressive results: 20%-25% increase in client satisfaction Reduced code branching from 5 – 7 on average to a single code branch Delivered higher value business.
Best known for being a global leader in navigation and mapping products, TomTom is also the mapping provider for Apple Maps, and the maps and traffic data provider for Uber drivers in over 300 cities worldwide. An interesting thing about TomTom’s SAFe adoption is that it started in 2012, which gives us a view into a fast-growing company that has worked within the Framework over a five-year period. There were some early wins (see quote.
When an organization looks at adopting SAFe for the first time, the reaction can range from, “I can easily see how we’ll be able to map our culture and practices to SAFe,” to, “Our organization is so unique it’s hard to visualize how SAFe will work within our context.” The folks from the French National employment agency, pôle emploi, must have surely fallen into the latter category, as the roles and constructs in SAFe weren’t.
There’s an interesting thing happening of late, which is that SAFe case studies are coming in almost faster than we can absorb and publish them. That’s good for the SAFe community, and especially useful for enterprises evaluating their options as they look for the best way to scale Agile throughout their organization. As the number of studies grow, we are also seeing a greater diversity of SAFe implementations, not just by size or industry, but.
The Administrative Office of the U.S. Federal Courts awarded Scaled Agile Gold Partner SRA International a five-year contract valued at $115 million. SRA will provide full software development lifecycle expertise for a variety of applications supporting probation and pre-trial services, as well as Case Management/Electronic Case Files which is the system that manages the electronic court filings. It is gratifying to see the progress that Agile and SAFe are making in the government space (see.
We just published the new LEGO video presentation on our case studies page. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check it out, especially if you’re working with an organization that is just beginning their SAFe journey. The folks from LEGO promote the idea of “systematic creativity,” which turns out to be an excellent approach to adapting and customizing SAFe to a state that best serves an organization’s specific context and culture. They.
