Successfully Scaling Agile Work Methods

Request demo
Header - Essential Safe

Organization undergoing agile and digital transformation face the challenge of scaling agile process models beyond the level of individual teams. This requires aligning a large number of teams around common goals. One of the most popular frameworks for this purpose is the Scaled Agile Framework (SAF).

The cplace Solution Template Essential SAFe supports the basic configuration of this framework and enables the transparent mapping and collaborative implementation of the characteristic artifacts. It allows to control the Agile Release Train (ART) of a SAFe program. The solution template provides visibility about who is currently working on what and how this work is progressing. This includes managing the associated program backlog, breaking it down into stories for the individual teams, and mapping existing dependencies. It also efficiently supports the preparation and execution of Program Increment (PI) planning and progress monitoring.
