So you’ve got several Agile/Scrum islands and you’re looking to achieve agility at scale? Scaling Agile starts with figuring out the right scaling approach (SAFe™? LeSS™? Enterprise Kanban? Something else?) for your context and then launching and running a coordinated change management effort working with teams, programs, leaders and supporting organizational functions (such as HR).

Is SAFe right for you?
You want to scale and you’re considering SAFe. Is it really the right move? When is SAFe appropriate and should you look elsewhere? It is a function of the level of agility you’re starting with, the level of agility you’re seeking, the kind of guidance you prefer, the level of dependencies between your teams, and more. We can help you figure it out of course. You can also start with a self-assessment ebook we created to help you decide.
Other Approaches For Scaling Agile
Maybe you’re not a big fan of quarterly “PI Planning” or the heavy iterative emphasis of SAFe. That’s ok. SAFe is not for everybody.
We are helping organizations such as HP, Siemens, Cyberark, Verint and others find their own way to achieve agility at scale. This might involve some aspects of enterprise-level Kanban, some ideas from LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) and some patterns that have proven successful in organizations such as Spotify.
