Yuval is coming to Stockholm to teach a Scaled Agile class (Implementing SAFe) in January. I know Yuval from the Kanban community from a number of years back. We invited him because we know he shares the same pragmatic view on things as we do in Crisp. We made the interview in order for our audience to got to know him a little bit. I could think of no better way than putting him on the spot with a few tricky questions 🙂
- Can you elaborate on the pro’s/cons of different approaches to scaling? (LeSS, Large Scale Scrum, SAFEe, Enterprise kanban)
- What should companies that goes down the path of SAFe pay more attention to?
- If I do face resistance when applying scaling practices, what are my options?
- What will I learn if I attend the SAFe class in January?
A key quote from the interview:
“If you don’t pay attention to the principles, the practices applied will deteriorate to ‘for show’
