We’re finished! The new Solution Train Engineer article completes the role-based guidance for large solution builders.
Hi all, It is humbling for us to know that some of the largest enterprises in the Global 2000 rely on SAFe’s guidance to build the world’s most important systems. Adopting Lean-Agile at scale helps these organizations create these critical solutions better, faster, and with higher quality. These systems range from the big IT systems that drive fintech and insurance to the cyber-physical systems in aerospace, defense, and automotive. We released additional guidance for these.
Driving Relentless Improvement: Reflections on the RTE Summit & a New Team and Technical Agility Assessment
It was a pleasure to attend the 6th Annual RTE Summit hosted by Scaled Agile Gold SPCT partners Gladwell Academy, held in Utrecht at the Railway Museum on the 8th – 9th November. As we all recognize, the RTE is critical to the success of the ART, and since its inception, the RTE Summit has been an important event for building and supporting those in this role. As I reflect on the event, the overwhelming.
One of the highlights of the SAFe Summit each year is hearing directly from our customers. Their experiences in applying SAFe to achieve business goals, and the lessons they learn along the way, motivate and inform the work that we do, and feed directly into the continued evolution of the Framework. And therefore, I am delighted to announce that eight new customer story videos, recorded for the SAFe Summit 2021, are now available on our.
Successful enterprises routinely measure progress to determine whether they are meeting their business outcomes, delighting customers, and improving their ways of working. Indeed, this is the hallmark of the ‘Learning Organization’. In support of this, we recently announced updated SAFe Metrics guidance – a simple, yet comprehensive, model applicable at every level of the organization. This approach is built on three measurement domains, Flow, Outcomes, and Competency. Measuring competency helps determine the level of proficiency.
Hello everyone, Each year as I prepare for our annual SAFe Summit, I pause a bit to think more deeply about the future of software and systems development, and how that will impact the evolution of SAFe. This year, I paid particular attention to a somewhat different source of information—specifically the financial markets—where I was looking to see what forward-thinking technology investments will likely alter the course of the industry. It started to become clear,.
Hi Folks, At the recent Global SAFe Summit, we were delighted to announce the induction of six new Fellows into the SAFe® Fellow Program: Rebecca Davis, Adam Mattis, Isaac Montgomery, Anand Murthy Raj, Jeff Shupack, and Yuval Yeret. The SAFe® Fellow Program represents an elite class of experts who are able to help the world’s largest organizations accelerate digital transformation and achieve business agility. This achievement is Scaled Agile’s most prestigious distinction, recognizing individuals who.
It’s no secret that we are enamored with value streams here at Scaled Agile. SAFe enterprises identify them, categorize them, organize around them, coordinate them, automate them, map them, measure them, and relentlessly improve them. In fact, value streams are so ingrained in SAFe that you can’t ‘be SAFe’ without them. With the ever-growing adoption of SAFe and Lean-Agile ways of working, value stream thinking is spreading quickly across the industry. Enterprises, analysts, authors, consultants,.
Recently, we integrated some of the organizational ideas from Team Topologies by Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais, into SAFe. We have incorporated this guidance into several articles, courses, and toolkits and discussed it at length in webinars and conferences. Feedback from SAFe Enterprises, who have implemented team topologies, aligns with the impression that we had when we first encountered this work – the application of the four topologies and their associated responsibilities dramatically simplifies the.
SAFe 5 introduced the ‘dual operating system’ as an operating model to help enterprises compete and thrive in the digital age. This model has passed the test of time. It has now become a meaningful way to separate the concerns of developing and launching innovative new solutions (the responsibility of the Network) and efficiently running and growing a business that leverages those solutions (the responsibility of the Hierarchy). But at that time, that is where.
A couple of months ago, we released a significant update to our guidance on SAFe Metrics. Central to this are the three measurement domains of Outcomes, Flow, and Competency, which together provide a simple, comprehensive, and scalable approach to measuring what matters for Business Agility, as the figure illustrates. Business Agility provides the enterprise with the ability to quickly respond to market changes and emergent opportunities. The speed of this response is determined by how.
