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.
Agile at scale is not just for dev teams anymore. Just what are the extensive benefits of combining Agile at Scale and Agile marketing? From things like taming mutable and diverse projects to streamlining campaigns, Marketing for Agile at scale could be just what the doctor ordered.
You and your colleagues have decided; it’s time to embrace the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) within your Jira environment. That was the easy part. Now comes the planning, development, and implementation. But what exactly does it take to carry out a SAFe rollout in Jira?
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!
With the implementation plan done, the 5th part of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series covers how to prepare for the first ART launch. But what are the steps required to prepare for the first ART launch?
As markets have grown and competition has gotten stronger, organizations are now looking for the best tools and methodologies for delivering the most value to the customer in the shortest amount of time. The synergy of SAFe and Jira could be just the thing to help your teams have looked for to accomplish project goals!
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.
At first glance, the two concepts of Agile and Enterprise at scale seem to be at odds with each other. The former gives the impression of skill, speed, and being light-footed, and the latter: plodding, slow to change, and awkward. So how do you know when to employ what?
