Leveraging Lean Agile Elements in SAFe to Solve Immediate Business Challenges
Join on us Wednesday March 23, 2016 at 6:30 PM as Principal Program Manager John Brennan discusses how to leverage Lean Agile Elements in SAFe to solve immediate business challenges.
Adopting the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) in a large organization requires executive commitment and some degree of agile maturity at the team level. In cases where an organization is simply not ready for SAFe, agile proponents can help pave the way for future SAFe adoption by applying SAFe principles and practices to solve specific business problems. In this presentation, John will introduce us to those SAFe principles and practices he uses at Nuance Communications that help plan and execute a particularly complex, strategic initiative involving multiple products and teams. He will further describe the challenges that were faced, and the benefits Nuance has realized and still hopes to realize from these specific practices.
