Has Someone Asked For Escape from inefficient project management that drives on to poor results or provokes chaos instead of structured stability? Then SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) may become your knight in shining armour. While some refer to it as a “fake Agile”, in reality, it’s an Agile methodology evolution that was initially called Agile Enterprise Big Picture. The name speaks for itself: it’s Agile, which allows us to manage complex projects with several aligned teams involved.
The framework has already benefited more than one million professionals and 20,000+ enterprises across numerous industries. And Plavno, an outsourcing agency, is proud to be in the club. Why do we bet on SAFe, and how does it help us remain competitive and productive? Here we cover it all.
Although SAFe was initially created for developers, Plavno applies it across the whole company, from HR and Marketing to the Sales and Finance departments. Instead of the traditional hierarchical organizational structure, where an executive decides where the company is going and by what means, the management decides the final destination, while it’s teams that decide how to reach it. Sounds too complicated? Let’s look at Plavno from the SAFe perspective:
However, setting up a single goal and breaking a company into trains and teams isn’t enough. You need to think through proper monitoring and supervision. Here are some of Plavno’s best practices:
SAFe is best used for cross-functional teams that require no supervisor to monitor employees day and night. The independent nature implies a high level of autonomy but total alignment at the same time. If something goes wrong, it’s easy to spot where the missing of the puzzle is. As a result, you get yourself a collaborative team that is easy to monitor if necessary. But what is more important, as an executive, you free yourself from the constant egg-and-chicken puzzle: you no longer need to attend four-hour meetings where the whole team tries to put the blame on the others.
Basically, an executive (or a key decision-maker) is a captain who says, “We need to cross the river, figure out how.” You won’t come asking if anyone is working on the river problem, you won’t even need to figure the solution out yourself, and your team won’t be lost in ambiguity, not understanding where it’s going.
Let’s admit it; when you look at SAFe processes for the first time, everything is blurry after a couple of sentences. What is a train, what does a Scrum Master do, and how do you ensure that everyone knows their roles? These are just some questions in an array of others. Don’t worry, with a professional SAFe consultant, it’ll get much easier. But even if you are going to figure out how to profess SAFe on your own, it still pays off. Here are some benefits that Plavno has noticed after converting to SAFe:
The world is quickly moving towards a cashless future, as more and more people are turning to digital payment solutions such as mobile payment apps and peer-to-peer (P2P) payment apps. With the growing demand for digital payment solutions, businesses are increasingly looking for ways to provide their customers with a secure, convenient and reliable payment experience
