Customization with Applied SAFe®
It‘s common that in larger companies a lot of practices and standard operating procedures already exist. It‘s also common that different life cycle models are concurrently executed in the same company. Because of this, Applied SAFe® already comes with strategies, concepts, and guidelines on how such integrations and extensions can be done.
- Use the included and comprehensive ‘Applied SAFe® Process Modeling Guideline’ to extend and adapt Applied SAFe® with your company specific processes; save months to define such a modeling guideline.
- Work with SAFe® add on processes in order to professionally manage your process development, assessment, deployment, and governance.
- You get all the content of SAFe (texts and images) with the right to use and change them, even if you need to translate to different languages
Applied SAFe® is also capable of making use of various life cycle models. As proposed by SAFe®, teams can run with Scrum as an agile method; additionally, it‘s possible to coexist with other life cycles by synchronizing via the Agile Release Train. Teams can choose their life cycle depending on their needs and their agile readiness. This solution has the advantage to let some teams smoothly adopt Agile, while other teams could choose other life cycles to work with; such as for example the V-Model, Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD), iterative or waterfall.
Interested in Compliance? We created mappings from Applied SAFe to various reference models like CMMI, Automotive SPICE 3.0, IEC 62304, CTR-180 (FDA) and more. It’s our concept to enable you to do this mapping by yourself. However, if you don’t want to do this customization by yourself, we will help you to adapt the standard process implementation to your needs.
