'Measure and Grow' your Progress to Business Agility

  • Andrew Sales, Scaled Agile

The goal of SAFe 5.0 is clear: achieving a state of Business Agility across the enterprise. The seven core competencies of business agility describe the practices in support of this goal, and the implementation roadmap provides a blueprint for the journey ahead. But change of any kind is never a linear path—it requires constant reflection on the steps taken previously and an ability to adapt plans based on the results. Indeed, the question often arises of how best to assess the progress being made on this journey, and how to identify appropriate next steps. To support this objective SAFe provides both the Business Agility and 7 Core Competency Assessments.

In this talk Andrew Sales will outline how a Portfolio of SAFe Value Streams can use these tools to measure its progress. By analyzing the results, enterprises can identify opportunities for improvement and explore recommended actions to increase proficiency in a particular core competency.
