New partner type—Global Transformation Partner—supports globally distributed and highly complex transformation journeys
While the SAFe knowledge base is freely available, it doesn’t implement itself. We provide abundant tactical guidance—such as the SAFe Implementation Roadmap—but there are aspects to large-scale transformations that unquestionably need the steady hands of seasoned experts. There you have the basis for the Scaled Agile Partner Program. When we launched the program in 2013 with a handful of Partners, businesses were mostly applying SAFe in isolated units. As they saw results they began extending.
Dutch Tax and Customs Administration speeds delivery by 3X while transforming long-established culture
“We are delivering faster and more predictably than in the past, which has changed many minds and driven a shift in long-ingrained ways of working.” —Mark Braam, IT Manager/RTE, Interaction Services at DTCA Behind every SAFe transformation, there’s a corresponding cultural shift. And there’s perhaps no environment where that’s tougher to change than in government. That’s what makes our latest case study so impactful. The Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (DTCA) has typically been very.
At the recent 2019 European SAFe® Summit, we did something we’ve never done before – we used the event to live-capture baseline metrics to determine how close organizations are to achieving true business (not just technical) agility. After Dean’s keynote presentation, we invited attendees to take a survey about business agility—and 164 of them did. To understand where the respondents were coming from, we included two questions about company size and the size of their.
Recently, the SAFe community, and indeed the entire Agile movement, lost a dear friend and champion. Coach, collaborator, big thinker, and host extraordinaire—I knew Martin Burns to be a truly independent, non-partisan, and deeply thoughtful industry leader. Martin believed in SAFe, passionately, and was a follower of the Framework from its earliest days. In 2013, he attended an SPC class I taught in London where he brought an expansive view of agility, and inherently understood.
Humbled. Inspired. Energized. Every time I come back from a SAFe Summit, I feel all of these things. And I can tell you why in just one sentence: SAFe companies are changing the world, one PI at a time. Just the week before last at the 2019 European SAFe Summit, we all learned how teams on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Project are using SAFe to build the world’s largest radio telescope to explore the.
Our thinking on the Economic Framework evolved quite a bit with the release of SAFe 4.6. Specifically, we added lean budget guardrails and some more clarity around how both WSJF and Suppliers are material to economic decision-making. In 4.6, we reflected that in a complete rewrite of the article attached to the icon. However, although it applies at all levels, that icon is physically located only on the large solution level, which not everyone uses. We.
Last October, we released the first SAFe® for Government course with an initial MVP design focused on the U.S. federal market. Even before the course launched, we began getting feedback from our SPCs working with governments outside the U.S., as well as interest from state governments. While most of the course content works fine in those contexts, some of the information specific to U.S. federal is not as useful there. The big question was how.
Hi folks, As enterprises and government agencies embark on Lean-Agile transformation journeys to get value to end users faster, they tell us that they’re learning a lot along the way. Case in point: cultivating a continuous delivery mindset across the organization is critical to get everyone in the value stream collaborating cross-functionally to solve real problems. It’s a growing trend we’re seeing as more organizations around the world adopt SAFe®. This is a great story.
Hello folks, We are pleased to announce the release of the Accelerating Business Value with SAFe and Technology Business Management (TBM) white paper. As organizations learn how to increase business and technical agility with SAFe, they also face another significant challenge—how to manage the massive increase in technology spending that now exemplifies many modern companies. Moreover, many IT organizations do not have full transparency into their spending or have a method for allocating their costs, and.
It’s been quite a journey, but we’re excited to announce that the last two articles in the SAFe for Government series are finished and live on scaledagileframework.com! Respectively, articles eight and nine cover: • Building in quality and compliance • Adapting governance practices to support agility and Lean flow of value By completing these articles, we’re reaffirming our commitment to ensuring that the guidance and thought leadership contained in the SAFe® for Government course is.
