About our Meetup group:
Welcome to the Elabor8 Lunch and Learn Meetup group! We try to put together a mix of different topics from our in-house consultants and from industry contacts.
About the talk:
If you're looking to implement the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) the following questions will often arise:
What is the starting point for implementing SAFe?
How closely does an organisation need to follow the various SAFe practices to get the desired outcomes?
The answer to both questions is 'Essential SAFe'.
While there are four configurations of SAFe — Essential SAFe, Portfolio SAFe, Large Solution SAFe and Full SAFe — Essential SAFe is the primary configuration and the foundation on which everything else is built. It provides a starting point for implementing SAFe and describes the most critical elements needed to realise the majority of the framework’s benefits. Only after this foundation is in place should the other three configurations of SAFe be considered.
In this interactive session James Halprin will walk through the ten key elements of Essential SAFe and guide participants through a self assessment.
Whether you're looking to go SAFe or just scale Agile in your organisation, you'll find this a valuable session.
