In this blog series, we are taking a quick look at each of the 12 steps in the SAFe Implementation …
At this point, you have implemented SAFe across all or most of your value streams. Your teams, leaders, and stakeholders are all well trained in agile principles. What now? In part 9 of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series, we’ll look at how to extend to the portfolio.
The train has left the station. It’s now time to accelerate. What now? In part 8 of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series, we’ll look at how to launch more ARTs.
In part 6 of this series, you learned how to train your teams to lead up to your first ART launch. But just because SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) have trained the teams does not mean they are completely agile yet. The agile teams need practice to truly hone their skills, and the SPCs need to be available to harness those skills. For these reasons, the Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) should make a concentrated effort to coach agile execution. But what does that actually look like?
Every step of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series has built up to the launching of your first ART but what does that launch actually entail? Are you truly prepared so that it’s all systems go? Read on to find out!
Everything we’ve talked about in this series previously has been conceptual. Today will be the first time in this implementation plan that we attempt to enact actual change in our teams. Creating our implementation plan will be the start of our actions.
In part 3 of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series, we’re talking all about identifying Value Streams and ARTs. Value streams are the primary constructs for understanding, organizing, and delivering value in SAFe. ARTs contain all the people and items necessary to enhance the flow of value. Understanding how they both work at this stage of the process is essential to any SAFe implementation.
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.
The journey of SAFe implementation for your business can seem daunting. Knowing where to start and then actually using the tools may seem like a process fraught with complexity. But it doesn’t have to be because we’ve got you covered! Today we’re starting our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series in which we will take a look at each of the 12 steps in the SAFe Implementation Roadmap.
