• Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®)


    For several years, the State of Agile Report has shown that SAFe is the leading framework for scaling up the agile way of working by organization level. In the same report, five important practical success factors are mentioned for successful transformations into that agile way of working:

    1. Having internal agile coaches
    2. Supporting the highest leadership
    3. Offering training
    4. Consistent processes and ways of working for all teams
    5. Implement common tools

     

    1. Agile coaching

    The agile way of working has become more and more common within IT, but not yet within other parts of the organization. Agile coaches play an important role in the sustainable adoption of the agile way of working. These agile coaches prefer to come from their own organization: they know the organization best and are more closely associated with it for a long time. Nevertheless, it can be wise, especially at the start of the transformation, but also gradually, to let experienced agile coaches from outside the organization come along. With their experience and ideas from other organizations, they can integrate and support the internal agile coaches. Do you have the ambition to become a good agile coach, then we have a nice training for that: Agile Coach. And of course we can also arrange experienced agile coaches to guide you in practice..

     

    2. Leadership support

    To be able to manage the (agile) transformation processes within organizations in a successful, efficient and effective way, higher demands are placed on managers. Whatever the method or methodology is used to work on, in all cases a heavy burden is placed on "the leadership" of departments, projects and programs. Our many years of experience within Capgemini has taught us what a manager needs to take on the small challenges in a self-aware manner and to shape them successfully.

    3. Training

    We have known this for a long time and it is now also confirmed from practice: training programs play a crucial role in change processes. And Scaled Agile, the organization behind SAFe, is aware of this. The provision of training materials now forms the core of their strategy. We have seen in recent years that the focus in SAFe training is increasingly shifting to the craftsmanship of the roles involved. In addition, the SAFe training courses have improved considerably over the years from a didactic point of view.

    4. Consistent processes, principles in best practices

    This is exactly what SAFe offers you. A common language, a set of 10 principles that gives everyone the right mindset and countless best practices, so that you can really get started. If you have little or no idea of what SAFe is, read the SAFe White Paper.

     

    5. Tooling

    Although the first core value of the Agile Manifesto says: Individuals and Interaction over Processes and Tools, of course you cannot do without tools. And using a common set of tools with all of them, according to the research, appears to be an important success factor. Scaled Agile and Capgemini do not provide any tools themselves, but we can of course support you with advice and coaching. The leading research and consultancy firm Gartner regularly conducts research into which tools support SAFe best. An example of this is this Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools report.
