February 29th, 330PM to 600PM:
The Scaled Agile (SAFe) Framework, Part 1:
SAFe A dangerous weapon: Techniques for implementing a lasting adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a powerful and popular framework for implementing agile at large scale across the enterprise. In this talk we will examine some dangerous implementation anti-patterns as well as healthier alternatives. You will learn some concrete techniques that help live up to the Lean/SAFe principles of respecting and engaging people. We will discuss field-proven ideas such as pull-based crossing the chasm approach to implementation, use of Open Space as part of the different SAFe ceremonies, and how OpenSpace Agility can combine with SAFe.
