Dutch Tax and Customs Administration speeds delivery by 3X while transforming long-established culture
“We are delivering faster and more predictably than in the past, which has changed many minds and driven a shift in long-ingrained ways of working.” —Mark Braam, IT Manager/RTE, Interaction Services at DTCA Behind every SAFe transformation, there’s a corresponding cultural shift. And there’s perhaps no environment where that’s tougher to change than in government. That’s what makes our latest case study so impactful. The Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (DTCA) has typically been very.
Hi folks, As enterprises and government agencies embark on Lean-Agile transformation journeys to get value to end users faster, they tell us that they’re learning a lot along the way. Case in point: cultivating a continuous delivery mindset across the organization is critical to get everyone in the value stream collaborating cross-functionally to solve real problems. It’s a growing trend we’re seeing as more organizations around the world adopt SAFe®. This is a great story.
“SAFe provided a map that enabled us to shift to modernizing versus just maintaining the status quo. As a result, we will deliver value faster to hospitals, clinicians and medical facilities, resulting in better healthcare for our beneficiaries.” —Brent Weaver, Director of Systems Implementation We’ve come a long way from the idea that government’s entrenched operating models would not be able to adapt to the more fluid approach of Lean and Agile. While there’s still.
“Using SAFe to deploy agility at scale across our product factory has been fundamental to putting in place the mindset necessary for our transition to DevOps across our value chain. We still have further to go on this journey, but the benefits we see have proven that the SAFe framework was the right choice to accelerate our transformation.” —Jonathan Coyle, Head of Agile Factory Operations, Murex We’re not always able to share company names due.
“For Deutsche Bahn Digital Sales, SAFe is the framework for the strategic digitalization program … With it, we are delivering faster and more effectively on our objectives, which drives our ability to compete in the digital age.” —Matthias Opitz, Senior Program Manager, DB Vertrieb, Deutsch Bahn In SAFe we rely heavily on the metaphor of the train. Value is released through the Agile Release Train (ART). Features are the passengers riding the train. The train.
“SAFe brings so much more engagement, which has really been key for all parties. I wouldn’t want to do it any other way.” —Rajbir Bal, Program Manager, Access Control, JCI Our latest case study comes from Johnson Controls (JCI), a multinational conglomerate that produces automotive parts, electronics, and HVAC equipment. With 170,000 employees in more than 1,300 locations across six continents, they have experienced all the familiar aches and pains that come with having distributed.
“SAFe helped us with a magic formula to bring alignment across all teams at an enterprise level, which we struggled to achieve previously. Scalability, visibility, predictability, and most importantly alignment, have improved drastically in the past year. SAFe has become integral to how we develop, deploy, and deliver our technology to customers. In short, SAFe helped us to re-define and invigorate our product development initiatives.” —Ramesh Nori, SPC, Director of Agile PMO and Agile Coach.
“SAFe was the right fit because of the dynamics and goals at EdgeVerve. It helps bring the alignment and cultural change needed to deliver faster results in an organization with many dependencies across products.” —Dr. Ronen Barnahor, Head of Agile Business Transformation, EdgeVerve Systems In a maneuver designed to move up the value chain, Infosys created EdgeVerve Systems in 2014 to deliver products, platforms, and solutions that would help drive growth. The strategy paid off.
“We wanted to experiment and demonstrate Agile principles and practices across domains. By empowering each business domain, acknowledging specific contexts in domains, fostering sharing, and ‘try and learn,’ SAFe has helped us get on the right track to success.” —Claire Charbit, Program Management NWOW #agile Adoption, Air France – KLM Hi Folks, I’m happy to share with you our first case study from the air transportation industry: Air France – KLM, one of Europe’s largest.
