Over the last twenty years, agile has gained more and more traction in not only the technology world, but across all business sectors. Now, it is almost a no-brainer for startups and enterprise organizations alike. While startups seem to thrive with agile, larger organizations tend to struggle when attempting to scale the methodology. This is why […]
For his latest book, We Run on Agile, Martin Seibert had the opportunity to sit down and chat with SAFe and Agile experts to gain insight into what it takes to succeed in this realm. This time, Martin talks with Burkhard Schmidt, a coach for the introduction of scaled agile methods (SPC), SAFe-Lean portfolio manager, Lean-Agile trainer and founder […]
At this point, you have implemented SAFe across all or most of your value streams. Your teams, leaders, and stakeholders are all well trained in agile principles. What now? In part 9 of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series, we'll look at how to extend to the portfolio.
You and your colleagues have decided; it’s time to embrace the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) within your Jira environment. That was the easy part. Now comes the planning, development, and implementation. But what exactly does it take to carry out a SAFe rollout in Jira?
Every step of our SAFe Implementation Roadmap series has built up to the launching of your first ART but what does that launch actually entail? Are you truly prepared so that it's all systems go? Read on to find out!

External dependencies play a relevant role in product development and in the collaboration of the individual teams in the ART (Agile Release Train) and in collaboration with other teams. For efficient collaboration, any dependencies, blockers, or risks should be directly identified and resolved. In addition, external teams that are not in the ART […]
During the last sprint, our team worked diligently on new features and improvements for Agile Hive. Version 3.10 of the Jira SAFe solution is now available. We have made various improvements to the breakout boards for the current release and further optimized the system in terms of usability. Read on to take a look at all the great new features!
While SAFe is a great starting point to kick off your agile journey, it can be quite complicated to find your way through at the beginning. Anyone getting familiar with SAFe® processes for the first time might feel overwhelmed by the abundance of terms and components. In practice, all these elements should fit together and mesh to ensure an […]
Why do organizations use SAFe? Ultimately for the same reasons that they introduced Scrum at the team level: to increase productivity, improve product quality, shorter, market-oriented release intervals, a higher customer focus, and higher employee satisfaction. Only on a much larger scale.
The larger the company, the more complex and multifaceted its structure becomes. Thanks to software solutions such as Scrum or Kanban, we can now scale planning and management processes, but they no longer cut it if you want to implement a comprehensive approach for all of your teams. Introducing: Agile Hive, our own SAFe with Atlassian tools, […]
The Corona crisis is omnipresent right now, and we are also experiencing it first-hand, too. Luckily, we have the experience and resources to continue our collaborations remotely with useful and productive replacements for in-person meetings (temporarily or perhaps permanently). There's no need for our collaboration and coordination to suffer – […]
In these times shaped by the COVID-19 virus, more and more SAFe® practitioners are asking about how to conduct a PI planning event remotely. There are so many different tools we can use to communicate with each other. However, many companies still aren't quite sure how to make it work most effectively.
What is SAFe®?
SAFe® is designed to tame the scope of agile processes beyond the actual development teams. You could describe it as a way to make product development agile throughout the entire company. A Scaled Agile Framework provides a structure that is not limited to the team level but also integrates programs, larger solutions, and […]
The COVID-19 Coronavirus is forcing agile communities to consider adopting a course of action we would normally reject: to avoid meeting in person when possible, especially with regards to gathering in big crowds. Under these circumstances, we must rethink strategies such as Program Increment (PI) Planning, a critical element of the Scaled Agile […]
We're happy to announce the release of the new version of the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe®, version 5.0, which aims to help companies scale agile principles and methods beyond agile IT and development teams to the entire organization. Onboarding all employees to the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe® requires a comprehensive and detailed plan, and […]
