Presented by Agile Baltimore and Sponsored by Eliassen Group
About the Topic:
Scaling Agile with SAFe®
Have you ever wondered how transforming from Waterfall to Agile can both increase productivity and reduce risk at the same time?
Last year, our presenter, Phillip Manketo was part of an Agile Transformation team that undertook a brownfield initiative to implement Scrum within an Enterprise Data Warehouse portfolio of a Federal entity. This unit was responsible for sourcing, vending and provisioning data attributes, which informed numerous interfaces, as part of a larger Federal compliance mandate.
Initially, starting with two teams using Scrum, the initiative progressed to six-teams implementing Scrum-of-Scrums, within 6 months. Thereafter, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) was adopted encompassing twelve teams (130+ team members) on a single Agile Release Train.
The transformation to Agile revolutionized how the Federal entity plans for the delivery of large scale ($100 million plus investment/year) programs, has significantly mitigated risk inherent in the complex integration between legacy and new architectures/applications, as well as between internal and external systems.
This presentation will focus on the following:
The changes to the organization
Technical practices required to implement data attributes every two-weeks
Corresponding benefits realized by scaling the agile implementation using SAFe® and lessons learned
