1) Brief Intro to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)

The basic motive for Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is to collaborate, synchronize, and coordinate the release of solutions developed by multiple Agile teams. In simple words, in an Agile development environment, SAFe framework will let the team scale the requirement up or down based on the organization need. The SAFe framework can be implemented with the help of small teams and large teams with minimum 50 and maximum 10000 team members respectively. It helps cross-functional and cross-organizational teams to deliver product on-time with the necessary scaling support.

Here you will learn to

  • Identify the problem
  • Understand the basic build of SAFe
  • Application of the roadmap implementation

2) First Lean-Agile Mindset before setting into implementation

The mindset makes the difference than the implementation. First, the individual and the team working on Agile projects must have the belief, and the willingness to embrace the Lean-Agile process. Lean thinking and Agile development mindset are required to be embraced by the team to scale across the whole enterprise. Two primary things need to be done and they are

  • Think Lean – The SAFe Lean house is built with lean leadership team as the foundation. The pillars of the house are the value for people, culture, innovation, and improvement to reach the goal. The goal to deliver value is the roof of the lean house.
  • Embrace Agility – Agile team’s and the leader’s ability, aptitude and skills are the base to construct the SAFe framework. Agile Manifesto offers the principles and value system as the fundamental for the mindset. Embracing agility will let the agile team become successful in the development process.

Therefore begin with the mindset to march into Lean-Agile transformation.

3) Know the SAFe Principles

The nine irreversible and fundamental SAFe principles are as follows.

  • Economic approach.
  • Relate to System thinking method.
  • Presume inconsistency and maintain the choices.
  • Build increments quickly and use incorporated learning cycles.
  • Evaluate the objective of the working system and mark them as milestones.
  • Foresee and restrict WIP, minimize the batch size and control backlog size.
  • Maintain an appropriate tone and coordinate with the cross-domain planning.
  • Release the natural enthusiasm of skilled team members.
  • Distribute the decision making and allow every individual to think.

Why these principles are the key to success in SAFe framework? It is because mastering these will let you build enterprise-class software. Irrespective of the complexity of the system or people these nine principles in practice will make Lean-Agile transformation achievable.

4) Experience Program Increment (PI) Planning

Agile Release Train (ART) distributes incremental value in the form of developed and tested software and system in a time-boxed duration and this is known as Program Increment. The duration of PI is usually between 8 and 12 weeks. There will be 4 development iterations that are followed by innovation and planning iteration in a PI. Each PI uses harmonization to make smooth progress in planning, restrict the work in progress (WIP), summarize the value for feedback, and guarantee program level retrospectives with consistency.

Get used to the PI planning method as it has better scope in portfolio management and road mapping. The session will include the following topics.

What is SAFe?

Agile is extensively utilized for small Scrum set ups mostly single Scrum team, not very intricate systems and for small projects. Having said that, one question that is popping up our my mind is, Then Does Agile or Scrum support larger squads across all geographies and at enterprise level? So, what do we do for larger teams and complex projects? What if a product is big and complex and we want to deploy more than one Scrum team to work on the single product? Let us learn answers to these questions further. For bigger teams to be worked on the same product at enterprise level, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) comes to our rescue.

SAFe summaries a method for growing Scrum to an enterprise level and addressing the issues at that level which a team-level method built on Scrum does not deal with.

SAFe overpowers one of the major downsides of Scrum that the teams may be more powerful and prolific. People tend to have a misunderstanding about SAFe i.e SAFe is not agile which is nothing but just a lack of Knowledge of the framework.

In a nutshell, we can understand SAFe as numerous Scrum Teams working together as small small teams in a single big team for a big Product. The scrum ceremonies continue to be same as it is in a small single scrum team. The lone change here is, here in SAFe, each Scrum Squad choices up different chore or piece of work, attend their stand up / daily Scrum call separately and then together attend one single stand up meeting / Daily Scrum Call called as “Scrum of Scrum”. At the closure of each Sprint, each scrum team’s task is combined and collaborated to showcase it as a singular piece of Product.
