Description

Agile is not a particular software methodology with a prescriptive checklist of things-to-do, but a philosophical approach to working iteratively and collaboratively. Manager will get an overview of the benefits of working in an Agile environment, as well as the highlights of the most popular Agile software methodologies. Armed with knowledge of the principles, vocabulary, and ceremonies of an Agile Framework, Manager are equipped to extend the concepts beyond software development and into their role as an Agile leader. Understanding these concepts will help teams speak a common language throughout the organization and give Manager the ability to lead by example. One of the biggest barriers to Agile Adoption can be a lack of buy-in from management and a misunderstanding of their role in the Agile transition. By understanding the importance of their role as an Agile champion and servant leader, Agile Manager can help facilitate a smooth transition for their teams. Organizational change starts with ensuring that leadership has a clear understanding of their role and can be effective as change agents. Agile Management techniques promote autonomy and respect on teams, leading to trusting, collaborative relationships resulting in continuous improvement, higher productivity, stronger loyalty and higher performance for team members. Using a servant leader approach rather than a traditional command and control approach, Manager become the catalysts to guide empowered self-directed teams.

Micro Focus COMMUNITY

AGL220 - Leading a Scaled Agile Framework(P)

Micro Focus

For years now, Agile teams have been able to develop higher-quality software at a faster rate by utilizing techniques that help them respond to change. This works great in smaller organizations where individual teams can focus on individual pieces of software, but it can be hard to scale these benefits across a portfolio of products because different teams are focused solely on their own goals. This misalignment of team, program and portfolio is often the obstacle that keeps organizations from fully harnessing the power of Agile. Defining an overall organizational portfolio vision and aligning each team's goals can help you further enhance the value of Agile practices. Through Lean Software Development and Product Development Flow, this SAFe certification course will show you how to create longer programs, called Agile Release Trains, where groups of Agile teams work together to optimize quality and velocity to deliver even greater value for their stakeholders. The Scaled Agile Framework (or SAFe) is a guide to aligning Agile development throughout an organization. Most organizations focus their Agile development efforts at the team level, first starting with a pilot team and later transitioning individual teams one at a time. Unfortunately, this method fails to fully integrate each team's efforts with the larger stakeholder need. The Scaled Agile Framework gives you proven techniques to align these teams to work at the larger program level, and ultimately how to align multiple programs into a portfolio that maximizes shareholder value.
