Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)

SAFe, or the Scaled Agile Framework, provides a proven, repeatable approach to scaling Agile at an organisation.

OUR APPROACH

Scaled Agile tailored to your needs

At IndigoBlue, we support scaling and embedding Agile using SAFeⓇ and our other repeatable approaches, proven time and again to deliver sustainable results to organisations. 

It is commonly the case that when organisations embark on an Agile transformation, they focus only on transitioning development teams. Not enough consideration is given to what is required ‘above’ development at the portfolio layer of the organisation or ‘below’ development at the layer of releases and operations. 

Without the Agile transformation of these two other layers, the transition undertaken by the development teams achieves less than optimal results, and is often critically undermined. For Agile to succeed and thrive, there needs to be an organisation-wide approach, encompassing portfolio management, business engagement and release management.

SAFe is an established and very effective starting point for taking this organisation-wide approach. With a well established body of work, many success stories, and a large amount of off-the-shelf guidance and collateral, there is a compelling business case for adopting SAFe, facilitating buy-in from senior stakeholders. It provides a mechanism for managing wide-ranging change across the different layers of an organisation, offering immediate and ongoing traction.

We have utilised SAFe with great success with clients such as Travis Perkins, and our consultants include recognised, expert SAFe practitioners who can train and coach organisations in the framework.

When SAFe is the best entry point for managing a transition to scaled Agile at your organisation, IndigoBlue can support you in a successful implementation. We use SAFe alongside other approaches and our own methodologies to drive the wide-ranging organisational change that Agile requires in order to flourish.

At IndigoBlue, we support scaling and embedding Agile using SAFe and our other repeatable approaches, proven time and again to deliver sustainable results to organisations.
