“When I talk to people who have tried it now for quite some time (SAFe), I get the feeling it is really working. When they talk today about value creation, it is not just an abstract thing, it is real life. They have experienced that the new way of working has allowed them to create more value."
“We never would have been able to make this big change without support from Ivar Jacobson. The practical experience of implementing agile transformations has been crucial to us.”
"SAFe provided a great framework to ensure that we have a way of articulating what the business value is, engaging with the business, having a clear view of what the roles and responsibilities are across those groups and then working together collaboratively to ensure that we demonstrate business value and get that enabled."
“Ivar Jacobson has contributed with their experience. They trained us, they coached us, they lead us, and challenged us. It has been a successful year for us.”
Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a conceptual structure and underlying knowledge base of workflow patterns and proven practices that underpin an organisation and serve as a supporting guide to help large-scale organisations work in a more agile way. Designed by Scaled Agile, Inc., the SAFe methodology has been used by hundreds of organisations to increase productivity and minimise risk, giving them the flexibility to manage complex industry challenges.
There are nine core Lean-Agile principles that Scaled Agile Framework is built on. These theories are the foundation for which all roles and practices of SAFe are based. Each principle must be realised and continuously applied to achieve the desired outcome of SAFe. The nine principles are:
A fundamental method when constructing and implementing Scaled Agile Framework is an Agile Release Train (ART). It’s a collection of Agile teams (five to twelve individual teams working under the Agile Framework within an organisation) that primarily develop, deliver and operate solutions under the company’s Value Streams (steps that build resolutions to continuously present greater value to the customer).
From flexible to regulated industries, SAFe adoption benefits organisations of all sizes, helping cross-functional teams collaborate under one unified framework. The fundamental benefit of implementing SAFe is its ability to enable teams to adapt to the volatile nature of projects and hierarchies, but there are myriad advantages:
