As the infrastructural basis for modern enterprise software, the Cloud platform has what it takes to transform working life for the better and help companies achieve greater flexibility, productivity and efficiency in an increasingly complex competitive landscape. And the results of a recent survey among Atlassian customers who have completed the migration from on-premise to the Cloud show that these are not just marketing slogans and sales promises.
This role-focused article is one in a multi-part series that examines how Agile Hive supports various roles in an organization leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) for better outcomes.
In this article we will be looking specifically at SAFe® – Scaled Agile Framework®, which is a set of organizational and workflow processes for implementing agile practices at an enterprise scale.
No team can do without meaningful prioritization of its upcoming tasks and work, even if it only acts reasonably efficiently and doesn’t want to rush past the needs of customers when developing a release or project. The MoSCoW method addresses the actual importance and relevance of a feature or story to a release or project, regardless of the amount of work required.
“Work Differently. Build the Future” – this is the new tagline for Scaled Agile Framework and we think it speaks perfectly and succinctly to the extensive work that’s gone into SAFe® 6.0. In this blog, we’ll briefly go into the main changes that make up this upgrade.
On 1 and 2 December, the Tools4AgileTeams conference took place. There were 3 very interesting keynote speakers this year, one of which was from Jurgen Appelo, who talked about his unFIX model, a simple tool that helps you with versatile organization design. Unlike many agile scaling frameworks and self-management methods, unFIX has its focus on continuous innovation and the human experience. It facilitates gradual change, dynamic teams, and an important role to play for managers.
On 1 and 2 December, the Tools4AgileTeams conference took place. There were 3 very interesting keynote speakers this year, the first of which was none other than Dean Leffingwell, creator of the SAFe framework. Among other things, he talked about immediately releaseing funds instead of waiting for the next year, the link between AI, robotics and Agile and what the next 20 years will hold.
As you may know, SAFe® allows each organization its own implementation and configuration of the combined benefits of scaled Agile, Lean, and DevOps frameworks. However, many companies struggle to implement it for a variety of reasons, one of which is the sheer variety of tools you can use that all do something different, and often not quite to the extent that you need. Learn how Agile Hive makes sure it’s the only tool you’ll ever need.
That was it – unfortunately! Once again, the Tools4AgileTeams conference, the first in the hybrid format, was over far too quickly: Over 200 people met at our headquarters in Wiesbaden and over 1900 online to discuss, share, learn about the whole spectrum of agile working… We collected some feedback and also tell you where you can watch the first sessions of this year’s T4AT. Click here and have a look back at two fantastic days!
It’s summer! And that means (well, for us at least): preparing for THE Agile event of the year, the Tools4AgileTeams (or T4AT)! This year, on 1 and 2 December, the event will be organized in a hybrid form: you can stop by in our new HQ in Wiesbaden or join us remotely to talk about agility in teams and organizations, New Work and New Normal and everything inbetween. And you can contribute as a speaker! Learn how by reading this article.
