Project hierarchies – How to implement the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) with the Atlassian Tools Confluence & Jira

What is SAFe®?
SAFe® is designed to tame the scope of agile processes beyond the actual development teams. You could describe it as a way to make product development agile throughout the entire company.  A Scaled Agile Framework provides a structure that is not limited to the team level but also integrates programs, larger solutions, and portfolios right up to practices that are integrated into the fabric of the entire organization.

In this short overview we’ll show you what we’ve changed in SAFe® version 5.0 and how Agile Hive – SAFe® with Atlassian Tools supports you as you map your SAFe® implementation.

SAFe Implementation Roadmap Part 2: Train Lean-Agile Change Agents

SAFe Implementation Roadmap Part 1

In this next installment SAFe Implementation Roadmap series, we’re going to be talking about training Lean-Agile personnel. Ultimately, organizations can’t make the move to SAFe without professional assistance. That means finding trained personnel who understand the basic principles of the lean-agile principle is of primary importance. To do this, an organization either has to choose to train personnel from within or hire consultants to help with the transition. The important part is that there are trained people in the organization before the change starts to take place.
