About the session:
Title: Implementing SAFe in Large Enterprise Agile Transformations: Driving Sustainability through a Focus on the Lean-Agile Principles and Practices
SAFe is a framework for Lean-Agile development at scale. It is designed to increase employee engagement, increase quality and predictability, and decrease product time to market for customers. But a culture and mindset that is guided by the Lean-Agile principles and practices behind it is crucial to a successful and sustainable implementation.
In this interactive session, Audrey will provide background on SAFe, how it supports Scrum and Kanban team structures, and focus on the principles and practices that make it successful. Participants will explore the Agile Manifesto/Principles, the SAFe House of Lean, and the SAFe Lean-Agile Principles and Core Values. There will be group activities in which participants will explore and discover how a firm foundation of Lean-Agile principles and practices supports a sustainable transformation. We will tie them all together and create a toolkit for change agents to use when leading an enterprise implementation of SAFe.
