Team Level SAFe

Agile Teamwork in the SAFe Framework

Request demo
Team Level SAFe

Organizations are constantly faced with the challenge of managing large projects and the uncertainty that comes with them. Defining clear requirements and priorities prevents delays, wasted resources, and dissatisfied customers. Agile planning and breaking large projects into smaller pieces helps reduce complexity while increasing efficiency. 

The Solution Template addresses the relevant SAFe artifacts, in particular the product backlog consisting of user stories and enablers. In addition, the core value of transparency is maximized by referencing features and enablers at the ARTLevel and by visualizing cross-team dependencies between different user stories. The clear display of “Current Iteration”, “Next Iteration”, associated Planning Interval (PIs) and Team PI Objectives provides excellent support for Core Value Alignment.
