Real World SAFe – Leapfrogging a successful waterfall company into Scaled Agile

Posted on by

The secret sauce? It’s all about experimenting, sometimes in¬†hats ūüôā

How do you leapfrog a successful waterfall company into Scaled Agile? How do you transition into Agile when you have legacy?

When your company is already successful in what it does and when it carries legacy, transitioning into Agile is a more complex challenge than starting off Agile in a green field environment. After all, companies that are successful in what they do (one way or another) tend to carry legacy. So we need to learn to improve in this kind of scenario too.

In this case study, I’ll walk through the steps SimCorp took to shift into Scaled Agile and the challenges they faced. You will also find deeper insights, such as how you can find your value streams, how we worked with the portfolio roadmap and some of the behavior shifts we look for when transitioning into a Lean/Agile environment.

Just back from Lean Kanban Central Europe 2015. A great conference that keeps pushing the limits.

At the conference I gave a talk together with Eik aka¬†“Captain Agile” from LEGO. We walked through how they introduced SAFe, how they involved other departments and most important,¬†how they experimented their way forward. ¬†(Me and Henrik iterated¬†as coaches during the transition).

Here are the slides.

Cheers
