Preparing for your first Potentially Shippable Increment, Speaker: Anu Smalley

Many organizations new to SAFe are likely to conduct their first Agile Release Train Quickstart.  This Quickstart is a 5-day immersion program that will bring together anywhere from 50 to 125 people into a single meeting with the sole purpose of identifying PSI 1’s features and objectives.  If the Quickstart will be the very first one for the company, extra thought and planning need to be given to teams, governance, value streams, and features.  Not doing so will be be quite costly and disappointing for all those in attendance.  When planning your first PSI, the Program and Enterprise need time to ask the hard questions prior to bringing all these people together. 

Anu M. Smalley, SPC, CSP, CSM, is an Agile Coach and Trainer with more than twenty years of experience in working and consulting with IT teams.  Over the last 5 years her focus has been coaching and working with Scrum Masters and Product Owners.  In 2013 she worked extensively with organizations to move them from team-based agility to enterprise-wide agility.  She helped introduce Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and coached teams on the adoption of SAFe and organizational transformation.
