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.
Business Agility is exhibited whenever an enterprise can quickly respond to an emergent business opportunity. In our latest update to the Business Agility article, we explicitly outlined the anatomy of this response. “Responding” is not a simple act; it consists of multiple steps that have to be executed in a fast and effective manner. Sound familiar? We are of course talking about a major value stream—in this case, the higher-level Business Agility Value Stream—a set.
Hi Folks, In a few months, over 3,000 attendees will be gathering online for the 2021 Global SAFe Summit. With a theme of “The Path Forward: People, Purpose, Principles,” the event will run for two days (Sept. 27 – Oct. 1) across three time zones. I hope you’ll join us for what has become an important, annual milestone in our collective knowledge sharing journey. Here’s what you can expect from this year’s online experience: Nearly.
It’s no secret to those in a Lean-Agile Transformation that achieving Business Agility requires a significant degree of expertise across SAFe’s seven core competencies. And while each competency can deliver value independently, they are also interdependent in that true business agility can be present only when the enterprise achieves a meaningful state of mastery of all. Measuring competency is achieved using the SAFe suite of Assessments. The Business Agility Assessment is the highest-level view and.
SAFe was born and raised in the large enterprise, or more accurately, in a particular business unit of some of the largest enterprises. Businesses turned to SAFe for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes the challenge was a ‘burning platform’ and SAFe was used quite effectively to develop new products and services to put out that fire. Other times, it was proactive leaders with successful companies who understood that what worked well in the past wouldn’t.
Architecting really big IT and cyber-physical systems? Read the new Solution Architect/Engineering article!
Organizations use SAFe to build some of the world’s largest and most important systems. These include big IT systems that drive fintech and insurance, medical research, devices, products and systems, cyber-physical systems used in aerospace, defense, automotive, and more. To build these systems better and faster, many big systems builders rely on SAFe’s guidance, including the Enterprise Solution Delivery competency and Solution Trains model. To support them better, we recently introduced new guidance for the.
Hi Folks, SAFe was designed with the world’s largest enterprises in mind, so the idea of applying SAFe in a startup environment might not be an obvious choice. Happily, that assumption has proven to be wrong. The Framework is actually well suited for small businesses. The principles are the same; the practices just need more selective adoption. In addition to using SAFe to run our own company, Scaled Agile, Inc., we’ve heard from multiple startups.
Hi Folks, We are excited to announce a significant update to SAFe Metrics. As we are all experiencing, Business Agility sets new performance standards for organizations, requiring fast, effective response to emerging business opportunities. This mandates changes to what we measure, how we measure, and what to do with the data we receive. It is a critical enabler for continuously improving business performance. To support this goal, we have refactored, refined and extended our approach.
