We integrated with the client’s chosen methodology and adopted SAFe as the primary framework for our solution, which used both Scrum and Kanban at the Pod levels. We decided on two specific outcomes to illustrate our achievements:
- The progression of Agile Maturity of the Pod teams we coached, and
- The level of Agile Behaviors.
We developed a three-phased approach to coaching the workforce and implementing our solution:
- Onboarding: designed to bring newly formed Pod teams up to the minimum level of operational agility; 8 weeks
- Incubation: drive the cross-pollination of knowledge and learnings to stabilize the implementation of ceremonies through role-based chapters / COPs; 4 Weeks
- Maturity Coaching: institutionalizing the practices to help them take their maturity to the next level; minimum 4+ weeks.
