Event Description

SAFe-based Lean approach using KANBAN for idea management in a SAFe Portfolio

Webinar on Jan 21, 2016 from 12-1:00 PM Eastern
Description:  Enterprise scaled agile methodologies describe an approach for orchestrating the planning and execution of software delivery at an organizational level. While teams are happily executing, ideas are constantly coming into the portfolio, representing feedback from everywhere: urgent business needs in response to market changes, high priority issues discovered by customers or support teams, time-critical business initiatives that promise early return on investment. Some of these ideas require immediate attention while others can sit until the next planning cycle.

The portfolio must process these ideas quickly to know which is which so that important stuff doesn't fall through the cracks.

How can we do this without interrupting the teams that are executing?

How do we do this using a lean approach that must consider work-in-progress limits and employ economic thinking to truly understand the importance of each idea?

SAFe's Kanban system is the approach to use when an idea is born. Come see a demonstration of how we embed this Kanban system in tooling that supports the SAFe framework.
