    45 Mins

    Can organizations implement SAFe safely? There are many organizations attempting to scale agile practices to a large number of teams and teams of teams. As I'm sure you know, there are many competing frameworks that are available to help in this regard (SAFe, Disciplined Agile, Nexus, LeSS, S@S, etc.). If you read the blogs, you've seen lots of folks talk about concerns they have with SAFe being too big or prescriptive or . Rather than survey all frameworks, this session will focus on the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and provide practical tips and tricks for how organizations have successfully implemented it minimally, incrementally, and pragmatically without experiencing the potential risks you might have read about.

    The session will cover practical tips, tricks, examples, and approaches to implementing SAFe in a way that helps ensure the success of your agile transformation.

    How do you promote mastery of practice areas? Danial H. Pink tells us people are motivated by autonomy, mastery and purpose. Small Agile teams promote autonomy while value streams and corporate missions promote purpose. Communities of Practice can be a great way to promote mastery, if formed correctly.

    Communities of Practice are more important today then they’ve ever been before. We’ve learned cross-functional teams are the best way to produce customer focused products but as we put people into value streams and product teams, are we creating silos where practice domains don’t communicate as often and knowledge gaps are widening? There’s a reason why most Agile Frameworks recommend forming Communities of Practice.

    In this workshop we’ll talk about forming masterful communities and you’ll create a handy pocket guide to take with you.

    Come learn how to form Masterful Communities of Practice and lead your organization going forward.
