Agile at Scale—and in Practice: SAFe® and the Flow Metrics

In both the commercial and federal space, the Scaled Agile Framework® is widely considered the de facto way to scale Agile initiatives in software development. Yet despite heavy investment in SAFe®, many executives and decision-makers have lacked the real-time accurate data to monitor the progress of their program and mission outcomes - until now.

The latest iteration of SAFe (5.1) has adopted Flow Metrics from the Flow Framework® to measure how value is flowing across their software-driven value streams. In this white paper, independent consultant Cecil “Gary” Rupp delves into the significance of this development:

    1. Creating the Agile Enterprise
    2. Aligning the Organization Around Value Stream Flows
    3. Making Work Visible
    4. Improving Visibility with Metrics and Measurements
    5. SAFe 5.1 - Measuring Outcomes, Flow and Competency
    6. Defining Value-Creation and Protection Work Items
    7. Aligning Measurements with Expected Mission Outcomes
