Leaders often ask, “Will implementing SAFe® lead to my desired outcome?” This is like asking “If I put the cart in front of the horse, will the horse push it?”
At its core, SAFe® is all about events, roles, responsibilities, cadence, scaling, and process. It can read like a set of prescriptive rules and top-down regulations. Some agilists even claim that SAFe® is not agile!
Join us to explore an outcome-oriented approach to a scaled Agile transformation. Instead of the cart before the horse, we’ll start with desired outcomes. Then, we’ll collaboratively build a capability model within these outcomes that can actually drive improvement. Then (and only then) we’ll use SAFe® constructs to realize these capabilities in order to achieve our desired outcomes.
