Leveraging SAFe 5.1 to organize around value and maximize customer-centricity

AgileSparks SPCT Yuval Yeret will bring his experience from working with dozens of enterprise-level technology companies to share practical tips and techniques that can be used with SAFe 5.1 to combine customer-centricity and Operational Value Stream identification.

Moving into the fast lane with SAFe® – RAPID RTC Case Study

At AgileSparks, we’re known for speaking out against what we call Agile Theatre where a company goes through the motions of adopting Agile but stops short when it comes to changing the way the business operates.

SAFe in the Trenches – A new ebook by AgileSparks

In the last couple of years, I’ve been writing about SAFe on the AgileSparks Blog, providing guidance articles for the SAI, and creating some complementary approaches and services in the SAFe context.
