SAFe Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a powerful tool that Lean Portfolio leaders use to allocate portfolio budgets to value streams. Since its addition to the Framework in SAFe 5.0, PB has helped enterprises make better decisions on billions of dollars in portfolio investments. One of the common assumptions of PB is that the money being used to fund value streams and Epics is free of any constraints in how this money is allocated and that.
I am excited to tell you about the new Solution Vision article released today. Having a vision matters to me. I am motivated by a compelling picture of the future and by confidence that my work advances a purpose I believe in. Equally, I find an artfully expressed vision that lacks practical guidance frustrating and unactionable. As an executive and a coach, I found this true of all leaders and contributors in all environments. The.
Delivering a continuous flow of value to the customer is one of the defining characteristics of an effective SAFe enterprise. However, flow is not easy to achieve, and many impediments occur along the way. Success requires a knowledge of what flow is and how to achieve it. In turn, this requires people knowledgeable in flow who can coach individuals, teams, and trains—and even LPM—to achieve a higher flow of value. This responsibility can be fulfilled.
The recent release of SAFe 6.0 focused on several major themes. These included helping enterprises to address the new challenges of AI, Big Data, and Cloud; delivering better outcomes with Measure and Grow and OKRs; and extending SAFe across the business. These are pretty essential topics, and we hear how valuable this content is to the enterprise. But we also reflected deeply on the very essence of Agile development, and the heart of that is.
SAFe 6.0 emphasizes increasing the Enterprise’s ability to provide a continuous flow of value delivery to its customers. This is accomplished, in part, through new articles on Portfolio , Solution Train, ART, and Team Flow. But the foundation of flow is a restructuring of SAFe Principle #6, which was recast to “Make Value Flow Without Interruptions’. This new principle describes the eight fundamental properties of a value flow system and how each unlocks an opportunity.
For thousands of global organizations and government agencies, SAFe has become integral for adapting to change, building resiliency, and thriving as a modern, digital business. Meeting the new realities of the marketplace requires SAFe to evolve continuously. While we’ll never lose sight of SAFe’s core benefits, our guidance continually improves to address new and emerging challenges. As such, SAFe 6.0 is a comprehensive update and includes many new and advanced practices alongside a new Big.
Relentless improvement is a critical tenet of Lean, Agile, and a SAFe Core Value, and we strive to embody those values in the Framework. With this in mind, we are excited to announce updates to the Solution and Solution Context articles. In SAFe, Solutions deliver the Portfolio’s value. Therefore, understanding solutions and their properties is critical to accelerating value delivery. It’s the central thing that delivers value, and most of our work revolves around it..

Hi Folks, In just two weeks, we’ll host the 2023 SAFe Summit Prague on 15 – 17 May. Living in the UK, I’ve always appreciated that this yearly event focuses on serving the SAFe community from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Indeed, it’s the largest convergence of SAFe professionals and industry thought leaders in the region. This year, we’re offering a packed agenda focused on accelerating digital transformation and competing effectively in a fast-evolving.
While leading the development of SAFe during the last few years, I’ve come to reflect more and more on the inherent nature of agility. While it might appear as “settled law” at this point, the fact is that agility does not seem to be a natural state—whether at the portfolio, large solution, ART, team—or even individual—level. While we generally make great strides forward, and we all receive the benefits of that, I’ve also witnessed new.
