Since its inception, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) has grown to become the most popular of Agile frameworks, especially among enterprises. According to the Scaled Agile Framework website, 70% of Fortune 100 companies have certified SAFe® professionals and partners onsite.
Organizations invest in SAFe® to realize the following benefits:
Streamlined, Accelerated Value Delivery
We bring together all areas of the business to rally around one goal: improving how value is delivered to your customers.
Reduced Risk and Waste
We help leaders utilize Lean and Agile principles to manage their suite of products in a way that drives focus, collaboration, and profit.
Improved Productivity and Quality
We identify and help you implement the right SAFe® practices so that teams can be more productive (on the right things!) without sacrificing quality.
Aligned and consistent ways of working
In order to collaborate effectively, teams must utilize common ways of working and communicating. We accomplish this by providing training and coaching for all roles and levels of the organization.
But to reap these benefits, enterprises need to overcome SAFe® implementation challenges such as blind, dogmatic implementation that lack a shared purpose. This creates risk and waste that organizations can’t afford. We accelerate enterprise-wide value delivery by providing a holistic and pragmatic approach to SAFe® that’s focused on business results.
To scale agility, your organization needs to build capabilities within business, technology, and operations and then optimize how these units coordinate and collaborate to effectively deliver value to your customers. We partner with you to identify and then build these core competencies that will help the enterprise achieve critical business results.
Agile Velocity delivers the fastest, surest way to success with a holistic approach to SAFe® implementation.
Key outcomes and activities of our SAFe® Agile Implementation Service:
We understand this is a serious investment and commitment. Our coaches will visualize and communicate progress and business results along the way, so you can make the right decisions.
“I believe we are getting Better, Faster, and More Efficient in the Crew area. Due to a change in airline demand, the Crew department faced a massive schedule change. The team collaborated with the business on a potential solution. Using the new capabilities acquired during the transformation, we were able to develop an application that handled large scale schedule changes and the solution was built and deployed into production in 3 weeks. Prior to the transformation, this effort would have taken months to complete. We were able to save the company over $5 million dollars in the first two months.”
“[Our Agile transformation] re-energized me. You can do these jobs for years and get good at it, but am I really being strategic? This will make you question what you are getting done and what your priorities are.”
“It’s not just about us. Lebron has a coach. The US Women’s Soccer Team has a coach. These are world class people doing world class things, and they still have coaches because none of us can see the blind spots. Having someone who is objective both for us as leadership and for your team is important.”
“To have someone come in and tell us, “You’re good, but you’re not as good as you think, and here’s where you need to focus,” was so powerful. We would have missed the mark completely if we had not had someone there to help us through those things.”
