SCALE AGILE

Establish agility in the company with SAFe

The Scaled Agile Framework, abbreviated SAFe, is a framework that uses various methods and principles to establish more agility in companies. Companies that are already successfully using SAFe report a significant increase in productivity, shorter time-to-market, and improved employee engagement.

“People at work are thirsting for context, yearning to know that what they do contributes to a larger whole.” — Daniel Pink

The idea for SAFe was determined from the fact that Scrum reaches its limits with a large number of teams. Scrum is a very efficient method for small agile teams but lacks an overarching structure. With the increasing desire of large companies to become more agile, new elements are constantly being discovered and incorporated into development during the use of SAFe.

With Jira Align, we turn Scaled Agile into your competitive advantage:

01

Coordination

SAFe requires fixed rhythms for planning and reflection at all levels of the organization. If these are in place, all employees know the current status and goals of the company and how they can work together towards a goal. To guarantee this, we use Jira Align as a tool. The tool can be used to implement all levels of the SAFe framework.
02

Corporate Management

SAFe requires leadership according to LeanAgile principles. Only you as a leader can change the system, establish fundamental values and create a beneficial environment.
03

Transparency

SAFe encourages trust-building behaviors such as breaking tasks into smaller elements so that problems surface more quickly. It also calls for real-time visibility into backlog progress at all levels, and requires rituals for review and adjustment. Linchpin Intranet in Confluence and our ISMS solution are sufficient to create a quality-assured approach.
04

Program implementation

Program implementation is at the heart of SAFe and forms the foundation for all other principles in the framework. Teams and programs are able to regularly develop high quality and functional software by connecting them through the ideal set-up of Jira Service Management, Jira Software and Confluence.
05

Integrated quality assurance

The SAFe framework specifies that flexibility must never come at the expense of quality. When applying SAFe, all teams at all levels of the organization must define what the "done" status means for their specific tasks. Here, there are five dimensions of integrated quality assurance: flow, architecture and design quality, code quality, system quality, and release quality. Using automated Jira workflows linked to BitBucket and Bamboo, we guarantee high quality assurance.

That's how we will implement SAFe

SAFe actively contributes to an agile mindset. As important as an agile transformation is, it is not very successful if it is implemented ad hock. We therefore recommend starting with a hybrid project management. Before the advantages of SAFe can be used, organizations must adopt a Lean-Agile mindset and understand and apply the Lean-Agile principles. We help you to identify Value Streams and Agile Release Trains (ARTs), to implement a Lean-Agile portfolio, and to incorporate quality assurance. In addition, we work with you to establish mechanisms for continuous value delivery and DevOps.

No matter which approach you would like to take in agile scaling we will guide you through the implementation and advise you on key approaches and the right strategy for your business. The foundation for the implementation of SAFe is formed by the Atlassian tools.
