Description

With so many agile-based process frameworks and methodologies out there, it’s hard to know where to begin. And just when everyone seems to be warming up to agile, here comes SCALED agile, there are even multiple scaled agile frameworks!

But how is SAFe really different than agile? When is it appropriate to start looking at SAFe for your team and your organization? Does using the SAFe framework prevent a company from having effective scrum teams? How big or complex do you need to be for SAFe to make sense? Isn’t SAFe just a glorified version of waterfall that companies adopt when they can’t handle “real” agile? I run across all of these questions when talking to clients, coworkers, and other technologists.

We have found that SAFe leverages the best pieces of a number of different agile frameworks, including Lean, Kanban, and scrum. SAFe is certainly intended for large, enterprise customers delivering extremely complex and interdependent systems, but that doesn’t mean you cannot take away some great practices and strategies for even smaller organizations with just a handful of teams. Since becoming a SAFe program consultant, Zaneta and I have coached a number of our customers on improving their software development and delivery processes leveraging practices and techniques from SAFe.

In this interactive session, we plan to quickly walk through the tenets of SAFe, share some of our learnings with you, and help you to understand when and how SAFe can benefit your team! We can also walk through how VSTS and TFS now supports SAFe processes with its newer process templates and customizable experiences!
