schedule 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM place Grand Ballroom 2

Scaling Agile is now proven in a multitude of Fortune 500 companies. From the case studies and presentations, it could look easy -- just follow what everyone else is doing, right?

But just as the anti-patterns of Scrum can maim the team, false starts at scale can paralyze the enterprise. Which six appear most often?  In this session, Francis discusses how to be proactive in these unSAFe situations:

  • Managers not thinking Lean and teams believing in chickens and pigs
  • Alignment as lip service
  • Prioritization as a game
  • Building a portfolio practice without strong program execution
  • Using Agile to build bad code faster
  • Never looking back

We know that bullets may not be silver and fixes may not be quick... but knowledge is key to enterprise safety!

    Hi Francis,

       Could you please provide your slides for this presentation.  It would help give us a better idea of where you want to take attendees in the session and a peek into your presentation style.

    Thanks much,

    Joel

            Francis - would it be possible to take up one of the case studies and talk about it - what was the issue, why did they choose SAFe, what were the challenges, and how did it help, etc.?

              This is a good idea, perhaps we could do another talk on both the foundations of and the successful implementations of SAFe? We have a pattern of this in our case studies that can be disucssed. My fear is that in the 6 Fixes talk that there is not enough actual time in the presentation itself. 

              Please, let me know your thoguhts. thank you!
