Practice Makes…

Finding true success with your SAFe implementation

We all believe that practice makes perfect.  However, if you practice the wrong things the only thing you are perfecting is the wrong approach.

A big part of my personal life revolves around motorcycles, specifically road racing and coaching.  When I am working with new racers or track riders wanting to improve their skills the first thing I do is to ask them to complete this sentence “Practice makes…”  Almost everyone says “Perfect!”, but usually the opposite is true.  When racers go out on track and continue to repeat bad habits, such as not moving their eyes down a track or using poor body position, they simply cement in the wrong technique, which makes it more difficult to correct later.  I always teach the riders to focus on learning the basics and then build on these good techniques until they become “permanent”. I want to thank Nick Ienatsch from the Yamaha Champions Riding School for helping me to see the importance of learning the right skills before starting to practice.  Working with Nick and the crew at YCRS and ChampSchool taught me so much about the importance of getting the basics right.

INVEST in effective SAFe PI Objectives

Could the INVEST criteria Bill Wake came up with for evaluating User Stories help us come up with effective PI Objectives in SAFe as well?

I think a good PI Objective should be:

– Independent – meaning ideally it could be delivered and evaluated on its own without any dependency on other PI Objectives. And if a team is able to own a PI Objective and delivery it on its own – it’s a sign that it’s a cross-functional autonomous team.

Iterating faster with SAFe

Here’s a frequently asked question in the SAFe community: I wanted to understand what SAFe says about someone who wants to go faster than 2 weeks of iteration? I mean the whole PI concept is based on 5 iterations worth of planning. What if a team/organization wants to develop and synchronize faster than 2 weeks? Is speed going to be compromised by following the standards of PI cadence?

Here’s my take:

Adjusting Cadence Length in SAFe – Can you? Should you?
