Manage the roles, responsibilities, and activities necessary to achieve alignment and collaboration across the entire organization with Agile Hive and SAFe
The larger the company, the more complex and multifaceted its structure becomes. Thanks to software solutions such as Scrum or Kanban, we can now scale planning and management processes, but they no longer cut it if you want to implement a comprehensive approach for all of your teams. Introducing: Agile Hive, our own SAFe with Atlassian tools, which made us a certified Scaled Agile Platform Partner and was developed together with our partner, KEGON.
The Corona crisis is omnipresent right now, and we are also experiencing it first-hand, too. Luckily, we have the experience and resources to continue our collaborations remotely with useful and productive replacements for in-person meetings (temporarily or perhaps permanently). There’s no need for our collaboration and coordination to suffer – quite the opposite!
In these times shaped by the COVID-19 virus, more and more SAFe® practitioners are asking about how to conduct a PI planning event remotely. There are so many different tools we can use to communicate with each other. However, many companies still aren’t quite sure how to make it work most effectively.
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.
The COVID-19 Coronavirus is forcing agile communities to consider adopting a course of action we would normally reject: to avoid meeting in person when possible, especially with regards to gathering in big crowds. Under these circumstances, we must rethink strategies such as Program Increment (PI) Planning, a critical element of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
We’re happy to announce the release of the new version of the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe®, version 5.0, which aims to help companies scale agile principles and methods beyond agile IT and development teams to the entire organization. Onboarding all employees to the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe® requires a comprehensive and detailed plan, and ours has now been extensively updated and supplemented. 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.
